The McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital
Trust announced Monday the successful completion of its $2 million,Growing to Meet Your Needs Campaign for
an expanded Emergency Department and Surgery Suites. The announcement was made
by John Harlan MD, Chairman of the McCullough-Hyde Trust Board. Overall the
campaign, which started in September of 2015, raised $2,058.000.00.
“Since the start of the campaign,
we have been blessed to have extraordinary support from our outstanding donors
and corporate partners,” said Harlan. “Their participation in the Emergency
Department and Surgery Suites Campaign means so much to the patients we provide
care for and their families.”
The newly-expanded emergency
department, which opened in late July of 2016, is more than double the size of
the previous department, provides patients and their families a more efficient,
modern environment for emergency care.
“Our project’s performance is a reflection of
the work completed by the McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital Trust,” said Brett
Kirkpatrick, McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital Executive Director. “In
addition, we have been fortunate to have dedicated leaders, like Campaign
Cabinet co-chairs Jack and Sandra Cotter and Alan and Diane Oak, who worked
tirelessly to make the vision a reality.”
Much has taken place in the last
two years at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital. TriHealth and McCullough-Hyde
have worked diligently together to create health care delivery options that
allow patients within the region to remain within the Oxford community for
services they might have traveled to Cincinnati or Dayton in the past.
McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital/TriHealth has added TriHealth Cancer,
Digestive, Surgical, Pulmonary and Heart Institute physicians on campus.
“The completion of this campaign is
a testament to the generosity and determination of our region’s residents,
businesses and organizations,” added Kirkpatrick.
TriHealth’s $17-million investment in the Oxford region has led to the
expansion and improvement of clinical services. With the opening of the newly
renovated Emergency Department last July, McCullough-Hyde is now focused on the
construction of the new state-of-the-art surgical suites. The successful
completion of the campaign will allow the hospital to increase the number of
operating rooms to improve workflow and to add space for innovative technology.
The project will be completed this summer.
