As Maryville students, we live fast-paced lives. While all of us would prefer a worry-free day with predictable outcomes, there is still the chance that emergencies may happen. Whether we are on campus or nearby, we can have peace of mind knowing that exceptional emergency medical services are only footsteps away from campus.
St. Luke’s Hospital recently opened a new six-room addition to its emergency department. The expansion was made possible by an $800,000 donation from Marvin and Harlene Wool of Chesterfield, Mo.
The new area allows Emergency Department staff to improve the patient experience by bringing the Emergency Department’s total to 26 rooms. The new rooms are fully-equipped with the latest amenities and technologies for emergency treatment.
“Experienced St. Luke’s physicians and nurses who specialize in emergency medicine provide compassionate emergency care for adults and children 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” states St. Luke’s Hospital. “For the past two years, St. Luke’s has received the HealthGrades Emergency Medicine Excellence Award, ranking among the top five percent of hospitals nationwide for emergency medical care.”
St. Luke’s Hospital is the only Missouri hospital recognized as one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals by HealthGrades since 2007. This achievement is marked particularly by the caring, supportive staff that provide patient-centered care.
