GMFF Grants Help Support Expansion of Hospital's Emergency Department
A multi-year grant from the Greater Menomonee Falls Foundation helped renovate and expand Community Memorial Hospital's Emergency Department, which is the point of entry for almost half of the hospital's inpatients. As the hospital's "front door," the Emergency Department supports its mission and promise to its community, continuing a half-century tradition of high quality, patient-centered care and community service.
Today, the Emergency Department features nearly 40% more space (from 11,735 to 16,270 square feet) and offers twenty-three treatment rooms with technologically advanced medical equipment in order to address the needs and acuity levels of patients in critical care. Community Memorial Hospital now provides exceptional emergency care in a state-of-the-art facility. Such care can often make the critical difference between life and death, full recovery or permanent disability.The hospital's Emergency Department is a Level III trauma center and certified stroke center staffed by board-certified Emergency Physicians, mid-levels and nurses certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Critical Care Technicians, and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.
