A Message from the President
As we begin 2015, I am excited to share some of Bethesda’s key milestones with our community. First, our state-of-the-art endovascular services are expanding to Bethesda Hospital West with the opening of a new $4 million specialized surgical suite, made possible by the generous donation from The Eloise Kimmelman Foundation.
Also, January 8 marks the two-year anniversary of opening Bethesda Hospital West. Our outstanding team of physicians and nurses has cared for nearly 18,000 adults and children in our Emergency Department this past year. Among them was a young boy who was successfully treated in our Children’s ER for a rare, poisonous snakebite; and a new mother who arrived in the ER, just in time to deliver a beautiful baby girl.
Bethesda is here and ready for you. You have the right to choose Bethesda. Tell the EMS paramedics that you choose a Bethesda Hospital facility that offers the safety and resources of a hospital for your emergency.
Thank you for choosing Bethesda. It is an honor for us to serve you as your not-for-profit community hospital, and I wish each of you a year of good health!
Roger L. Kirk, FACHE
