Community group supports hospital’s campaign

Glendale Heights – A charitable arm of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Bartlett has pledged a $15,000 donation over three years to Adventist GlenOaks Hospital’s newly-built emergency department. A cardiac treatment suite has been named in honor of BAPS Charities, an international nonprofit social service charity.

“We are grateful to BAPS Charities for this gift, which will directly impact patient care,” said Brinsley Lewis, CEO of Adventist GlenOaks Hospital.

Added Karen Lawler, executive director of the GlenOaks Hospital Foundation: “This gift also strengthens the hospital’s partnership with this important community organization.”

Adventist GlenOaks Hospital has partnered with BAPS Charities for community events including health fairs and screenings and for the distribution of diabetes supplies to needy patients upon discharge.

The gift fits with BAPS Charities’ vision that every individual deserves the right to a peaceful, dignified and healthy way of life.

“GlenOaks is a hospital that doesn’t just talk about community service but makes it happen,” said Dr. Paresh Patel, an internal medicine specialist on staff at Adventist GlenOaks Hospital and a member of BAPS.

The gift will go toward the GlenOaks Hospital Foundation’s $1.5 million capital campaign for the new Emergency Department, which opened in 2007. Known as the Shanahan Emergency and Trauma Center, the emergency department has a unique concept – there is no waiting room. Upon arrival, patients are escorted directly to a private treatment room where they are promptly treated. The $7 million facility includes 19 private, spacious treatment suites that consist of primary exam suites, cardiac exam suites, trauma and pediatric suites as well as psychological exam rooms. The private suites each have televisions, telephones, internet access, natural light and nurse call buttons. There are also separate family lounges to give family members the ability to remain on-site while giving privacy to the patient and health care professionals.
