COVID-19 Emergency Preparedness and Recovery
Emergency Care Center
Our Emergency Care Center cares for over 82,000 patient visits annually. As the busiest emergency care center in Southern California, the need for construction to increase patient flow and reduce wait times is crucial. Construction of the center will ensure our patient needs will be seamlessly meshed with appropriate medical resources to provide the right care, in just the right amount, for the right needs, at the right time.
Heart and Vascular
Heart and vascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in this country. Funds raised through the Heart & Vascular initiative will build a new Cardiac Catheterization Lab with an ultra-modern imaging and diagnostic system including an interventional angiography system. This interventional imaging equipment will reduce radiation use, provide sharper imaging and visualization.. It will not only increase the speed and accuracy of diagnosis, but lead to treatments that minimize pain, risk, and recovery time. The new lab and equipment will support more complex procedures, and help improve patient outcomes during interventions.
For more detailed information on our Heart & Vascular initiatives, please contact Katie McInerney at (714) email@example.com or Foundation@stjoe.org.
Mental Health Services
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, stress, isolation and fear around this, our mental health crisis cases have increased by 8,000% in Southern California. St. Joseph Hospital continues to be at the forefront of how we can best support our mental health patients. Our mental health facility initiative will fund the renovation of the current space, new construction initiatives will add significant capacity, increase patient satisfaction, and provide a setting for new patient care services. This initiative will also fund the need for social workers, counseling programs and outpatient video counseling for those who desire to seek help remotely to provide the support needed with the increase in cases due to COVID-19.
For more detailed information on our Mental Health initiatives, please contact Katie McInerney at (714) firstname.lastname@example.org or Foundation@stjoe.org.
Progressive Care Unit
Now more than ever, our next BIG project is building out 20 more beds that offer a superior level of care for patients who no longer need the Intensive Care Unit, but still require a certain type of "room" and what care comes with that unit. During COVID-19 we have learned that the type of rooms we have available are just not enough. The cost to convert a room is astronomical. With our aging population, our communities needs for the highest level of care are increasing. We will embark on building the best unit for our Dear Neighbor with your support.
Our goal is to raise $10 million for this much-needed department.
For more detailed information on the Progressive Care Unit, please contact Amy Daugherty, Chief Philanthropy Officer, at email@example.com or Foundation@stjoe.org.
