St. Michael’s sets new Angel Ball gala record, raising $3.5 million
St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation raised a record $3.5 million at its eighth Angel Ball gala Saturday to help renovate and double the size of the hospital’s Emergency Department.
The Emergency Department which was built to accommodate 45,000 patients annually now sees just under 75,000 a year. The expanded ED will include more patient treatment areas, a CT scanner and ultrasound within the department for diagnostic imaging and a larger rapid assessment zone for efficient triaging of less severe cases. The renovated ED will also help to continue advancing St. Michael’s medical specialties, including trauma and critical care.
