Investing in people’s lives through healthcare
The Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund awarded a grant to Providence Seaside Hospital to fund Beyond 911: A Campaign to Expand Emergency Care at Providence Seaside Hospital. The project was set up to enable the community hospital manage the growing and diverse needs for emergency care services in Clatsop County.
The hospital put the grant to good use right away, supporting the construction and build out of space for more private treatment rooms, expanded trauma bays, safe rooms for patients experiencing mental health crises, and larger waiting rooms in the Emergency Department. The result? Greater capacity to serve people better at a time when they need it the most.
