It may be vacation time for many area visitors, however plans for the new freestanding Emergency Department at Beebe’s planned South Coastal Health Campus are moving along during the busy summer months.
Emergency Department physicians often see patients at their worst moments on their worst days. They arrive with injuries, illnesses, and often they are in a life-threatening situation.
Surgical teams are undergoing meticulous training on the new da Vinci Xi Surgical System at Beebe’s Center for Robotic Surgery.
Beebe Medical Foundation hosted the fourth annual Beach Bash on June 2 to benefit Beebe Healthcare’s Emergency Department. This year’s event raised $140,000—the greatest amount recorded in the Beach Bash’s four year history.
The way people receive healthcare services is changing rapidly across the country, and Beebe has been changing how it cares for this community, too. Since the peak in hospital admissions reached early last year, Beebe has successfully reduced the number of people who need to stay in the hospital, through its efforts to broaden and elevate its outpatient care, and keep people healthy.
One of the most enjoyable ways to raise money for our not-for-profit healthcare system is by accepting donations from those who have received excellent care here at Beebe. Sometimes, they are giving to recognize care they received, other times they give in honor or memory of a loved one. The latter was the case with our recent meeting and donation from the Caggiano family.
Thomas Draper had two passions – serving the Delmarva community and his family. Draper, a Milford native, was killed while bicycling (possibly his third passion) in 2017. However, his work lives on in WBOC and in the continued passion for the community that his family displays daily.
