Emergency and Urgent Care

The Emergency Services department nurses and providers understand and appreciate the important role charitable gifts play in creating better health care for all. Foundation contributions have supported needed equipment and staff education to continue to advance capabilities.

Most recently, through funding from the St. Michael Medical Center Foundation, eight nurses attended a national Emergency Nurses Association Conference and were inspired about how to improve sepsis care at St. Michael, particularly through improvements in the early detection and decisive treatment of sepsis — a life-threatening condition brought on by an overwhelming immune response to infection.
