New Family Consultation Room for Our Community
Proceeds from the Moonlight and Merlot event will provide for a new Family Consultation Room in the expanded Augusta Health Emergency Department. This new area will provide a private space when "moments matter." With this addition, families will have a quiet place where they can discuss treatment options or expected outcomes with physicians and caregivers.
The existing Emergency Department was constructed in 1994 to accommodate 34,000 patient visits per year. Since that time, patient visits have grown to more than 60,000 per year. Our new Emergency Department will include a complete renovation of the existing space and an additional facility for expansion. The current 24 treatment rooms will be expanded to 48 with special care areas for trauma/critical care, behavioral health, sexual assault, isolation, and to accommodate bariatric patients. A new walk-in entrance with a connection to the main hospital will provide after-hours access.
