“ALL OUR DREAMS CAN COME TRUE, IF WE HAVE THE COURAGE TO PURSUE THEM” – Walt Disney
The Evening of Caring Gala has always been about ensuring Eagle Ridge Hospital continues to provide best-in-class patient care, close to home. This year is no different, as we focus on raising funds to support the expansion of the NEW Emergency Department at ERH.
Over 53,000 patients and their families came through our Emergency Department last year – our true “front door”, arriving on stretchers, walking, being carried or in wheelchairs – in a space designed in 1988 to treat 20,000 patients annually. As the population grows, so does the number of patient visits, increasing time spent in the ED and stretching our ability to serve them effectively. The truth is our current Emergency Department is significantly undersized, overcrowded and congested resulting in less than ideal delivery of care and support services. We must provide residents living in our community with the legendary care they expect and deserve.
“Emergencies are not elective. People come to the Emergency Department because they are in crisis. Expanding our Emergency Department ensures our residents have access to care when they need it the most.” – Dr. Mike Mostrenko, Emergency Physician
Benefits of the expanded Emergency Department include:
Improving emergency care and outcomes for you, your family and friends living in our community.
Enhancing patient experience for faster, more accurate diagnosis, shorter wait times, and reduced transfers.
Supporting an exceptional health care team with up-to-date technology, in a state of the art space that is 3x the size with double the treatment spaces.
Join us in supporting this legendary team and growing your community hospital at our Evening of Caring Gala and be a part of a dreamlike evening.
