Warren's President Scott Wolfe.
Phillipsburg, NJ (5/10/2013) - The St. Luke's Warren Hospital Auxiliary presented a check for $50,000 to hospital president Scott R. Wolfe at their spring meeting. The funds were raised through dozens of activities conducted during the past year and will be used by the hospital to purchase medical equipment and technology.
In presenting the gift, Ms. Long talked about the Auxiliary's long-standing support of Warren and its commitment to raise funds that will be used to improve the patient experience of our community members.
Mr. Wolfe said, “We have been grateful for the efforts of our Auxiliary since 1923, when your first members went door to door collecting food for patient meals. Ninety years later, you still are as devoted and committed as ever to this hospital, its employees and physicians, and - most of all - to the patients we care for. Thank you.”
The nonprofit hospital became part of St. Luke's University Health Network in 2012, and currently provides acute inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical care, cancer and cardiac care and a wide array of geriatric services. The hospital recently announced a $30 million upgrade during the next three years to construct a new Intensive Care Unit, upgrade clinical areas and renovate patient rooms. Further, the hospital plans to expand outpatient services and increase the number of primary and specialty practices located throughout Warren County.
St. Luke's Warren Hospital is celebrating its 90th year in 2013 as well as its first anniversary as a member of the St. Luke's University Health Network. The hospital has an established commitment to support and implement community outreach and provide care consistent with its charitable mission. It does this through a formal Charity Care program, free classes to improve the health of the community, educational programs and support groups.
St. Luke's Warren Campus admits 7,133 patients annually (including observation patients), cares for more than 30,000 annual emergency room visits and manages about 96,000 outpatient visits. The active Medical Staff is comprised of 194 physicians.
