Mobile, Ala. -- More than 200 gathered March 6 at the University of South Alabama Medical Center to mark the completion of a renovation project of the main entrance and lobby.
“Our new entrance is just one example of how we are transforming the patient experience at USA Medical Center,” said Administrator Sam Dean, who led renovation efforts. “As the region’s only academic medical center, we already offer the highest quality care. We want our facilities to match the strength of our staff.”
The updated front entrance and lobby, funded by the University of South Alabama, includes a new front desk more centrally located so that staff members may offer assistance more quickly to visitors and patients. Where the front desk was now stands a feature wall highlighting the people and organizations who support the mission of USA Medical Center: To help people lead longer, better lives.
The lobby renovations were completed just days after the announcement that USA Medical Center received a $5 million private gift for its Level 1 trauma center by local philanthropist Herbert Meisler. The gift, combined with $4 million from the state, will fund the Fanny Meisler Trauma Center.
