When seconds count, the Emergency Department (ED) swings into action to give life-saving care. Coryell Memorial Healthcare System recently updated its ED with six new patient rooms and other upgrades. The new facility covers over 5,000 square feet and more than doubles the emergency room's capacity. It features a fully equipped trauma room, a new helicopter pad, and new equipment.
This wonderful addition was largely made possible by the community it serves. Donations large and small were all instrumental in making this vital expansion possible. In honor of their "Platinum Founder" level donation, the new ED has been named the Gary and Diane Heavin Emergency Services. The Heavins and other donors are listed on a large display in the ED waiting area and we are all thankful for their dedication to the health of this community.
