About the ICU Capital Campaign
Serving the population of Westmoreland County and beyond, the number of patients admitted to the ICU continues to grow beyond predicted numbers at Westmoreland Hospital. In fiscal year 2014 (July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014), nearly 1,150 patients were admitted to the ICU, a number well beyond the anticipated 675 patients for that same time period. Of those, some 200 were open heart patients, not surprising given that heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in Pennsylvania and Westmoreland County. Further, incidence of stroke and accidents rank high on Westmoreland County’s list of risk factors, all of which demonstrate a true need for the high level care found in an ICU.
Through your generosity, you can help us realize the kinds of renovations needed to bring state-of-the-art critical care to our region – the kind of care that provides a healing environment along with the technology to care for complex patient needs.
