Trick or Trot

2013_Trick_Or_Trot.jpgUSA Children’s & Women’s Hospital supporters and friends come together every year for the Trick or Trot 5K and Scary Scurry Fun Run at the University of South Alabama Moulton Tower.

This event is filled with family fun, running, trick-or-treating and children’s activities with great food and drinks. Post-race festivities include pumpkin decorating, costume contests, a photo booth, bounce houses, outdoor movie, train rides, games, and music!

The event raises funds for restoration of the USACWH Evaluation Center, a 14-bed, Level III emergency department that sees more than 35,000 patients annually. It is specially equipped and staffed to meet the unique needs of children and women with obstetrical and gynecological emergencies. Critically ill patients may be transported via air medical helicopter, area ambulance service or through the hospital’s neonatal or pediatric intensive care transport vehicles.

 

USA Children's & Women's Hospital Evaluation Center Redesign Project

Our emergency medical services are provided through the Evaluation Center, which is an 11-bed, Level III emergency department. The Evaluation Center sees more than 35,000 patients annually and is specially equipped and staffed to meet the unique needs of children and women with obstetrical and gynecological emergencies. Critically ill patients may be transported via air medical helicopter, area ambulance service or through the hospital’s neonatal or pediatric intensive care transport vehicles.

A $2 million state-of-the-art expansion and relocation will make the Evaluation Center more accessible by ambulance, feature additional beds for treatment, provide dedicated space for OB/GYN patients and separate waiting rooms for our adult and pediatric patients. This design will help reduce wait times and streamline care at the only Emergency Room dedicated solely to the healthcare needs of children and women. A larger Evaluation Center will better accommodate our patients and families while continuing to provide the quality care that they deserve.

Additional highlights of this Level III Trauma Center include:

  • 26 treatment rooms to increase capacity for care
  • New triage system enables faster diagnosis
  • Large, comfortable waiting room provides privacy and decreases stress
  • Covered short-term parking and separate EC entrance improves ease of access
  • Separate and enclosed climate-controlled ambulance bay protects patients from the elements, offers space for multiple rigs and workspace for EMS providers
  • Resuscitation and orthopaedic procedure rooms are located just inside the bay doors for faster response
  • New, more efficient layout helps staff deliver faster care
