ED PROJECT ON SCHEDULE AND ON BUDGET
The Williamson Street campus is busy with active construction and renovation in and around our Emergency Department. We’re in the middle of an $18 million project that will almost double the depart-ment’s size and capacity, create a dedicated diagnostic imaging suite, and feature areas for pediatric, geriatric and behavioral health patients. The result will be a bigger, better emergency department and improved patient comfort, privacy, and satisfaction.
Construction is now complete on the imaging suite. Completion of the new ED waiting room and surgical sub-waiting room is expected very soon. Throughout April, ED operations will move from existing areas to these newly-built areas as Phase 1 reaches completion.
Phase 2 will be the construction of the ICU expansion, and creation of geriatric, behavioral health, and fast track/pediatric areas. By December, Phase 3 will begin on the cosmetic renovation to the existing ED. August 2017 is the projected date of completion.
Support of our donors has helped bring the vision of this major project to reality. Thanks to generous individuals, companies, foundations, and Trinitas physicians and staff, we are well past the halfway mark to our multi-million dollar goal.
Why not join our donor family in supporting our Emergency Department expansion and renovation that will help us continue to bring superior healthcare to our community.

GATHER WITH US FOR OUR ANNUAL GALA!
You can be part of a night to remember! Join enthusiastic supporters of Trinitas at the Trinitas Health Foundation’s 2016 Gala on Thursday, May 12. The theme of this year’s event Rising to the Challenge.
Mortimer Gershman, benefactor of the Health Foundation and long-time member of the Foundation Board, will be posthumously honored with the Foundation’s Celebrating Philanthropy Award. His wife, Jacqueline, will accept his award.
The excitement of the Gala returns for a fifth year to The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey, where the breath-taking ambiance of the venue is rivaled only by the extraordinary food, drink and socializing. The Infernos Band, the area’s premier live performance group, will perform music throughout the evening. The dynamic group boasts Richie Rosato, former lead singer of The Duprees, and Kenny Simmons, former member of The Commodores.
During a full cocktail hour, guests can meet and mingle as they view a distinctive array of extremely desirable items up for bid at the Silent Auction including trips and one-of-a-kind experiences. Take your chance on a 50/50 raffle, another way you can contribute funds that will benefit Trinitas patients.

WINGS OVER TRINITAS
The United Adventure Bear program, a community outreach program of United Airlines, winged its way to Trinitas and the Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center to distribute the plush bears to Trinitas patients. Complete with their own Passports, the bears brought smiles to patients like Jose Velasco as United employees Estella Ventura and Christopher Bowers presented him with a bear that brightened his day. The Trinitas Health Foundation hosted the visit of United employees and shared information about Trinitas’ strengths as a community hospital boasting 10 Centers of Excellence.
