Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, today launched a $9 million renovation and expansion of the hospital’s emergency department, which is one of the busiest in Louisville. The changes will more than double the size of the emergency department, bring new technology to the patient’s bedside and improve overall workflow of the department, which will help decrease patient wait times.
The project is funded by the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation and made possible by generous donations from the community. The foundation launched a campaign several years ago to raise funds for the much needed expansion and renovation of the emergency department. To date, $3 million has been raised specifically for the project and another $6 million was released from the foundation’s unrestricted fund.
