The Emergency Department is the front door to the hospital. More than 60% of patients admitted come through the ED. We have risen from #32 to #19 in ED patient loyalty in the company for the 2nd quarter! It takes a great team supporting our ED to make this happen so please everyone give yourself a pat on the back. Our ED volume reflects these results as we are up 19% over last year for July so far. Please continue your hard work on rapid assessment, testing turnaround time , and bed placement for these patients.
