LUTHERAN MEDICAL CENTER UNVEILS EXPANDED EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT WITH HELP OF ELECTED OFFICIALS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS
December 1, 2011, Brooklyn, NY
Lutheran Medical Center hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 30 to unveil the newly expanded Emergency Department. The ceremony was attended by members of Lutheran's executive and medical staffs, Board of Trustees, elected officials and community leaders. The speaking program also featured Pamela Haahr as a special guest. Ms. Haahr received lifesaving care at Lutheran's ED and came to tell her story and thank the doctors and nurses who work to save lives everyday.
The project was funded through $5.7 million in HEAL NY Phase 7 funding, which was strongly supported by State Senator Martin J. Golden, and $2 million secured by New York City Council Members Sara M. Gonzalez, Domenic M. Recchia, Jr., and Vincent J. Gentile. The funding allowed for expansions including the addition of 16 new treatment bays and two additional fast track/triage stations (Quick Care program). The additional bays allow clinicians to treat higher acuity patients while the new fast track/triage stations will provide treatment for less urgent conditions, which will ultimately improve efficiency, reduce patient wait times and allow LMC to care for many more Brooklyn patients.
