OXFORD— 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.
“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.
