The Transformation of Emergency Medicine
Craig and Karen Stull's inspirational $4 million gift paved the way for transformational changes at the HonorHealth Thompson Peak Medical Center Emergency Room.
paved the way for the hospital to meet the needs of the surrounding area and continue to ensure our families, neighbors and friends receive expedient, quality care when they need it most: during a medical crisis.
“As a grateful patient, I know the value of comprehensive and compassionate healthcare,” said Craig Stull. “Transformational emergency medicine is something I believe our growing and demographically diverse community needs, so my investment is in healthcare but also people – to help save more lives.”
The Craig and Karen Stull Emergency Department at HonorHealth Scottsdale Thompson Peak Medical Center now has more exam rooms for expedited care, along with a centralized care station for physicians and nurses to collaborate. To meet a growing community need, the gift also helped create a negative-pressure room and expanded triage rooms. The additional capacity allows staff to serve the increase in emergency and surgical patients without delay or over-crowding.
“We love our community and want it to have the best – especially when there is a life-threatening event,” said Karen Stull. “So, by design, our gift helps ensure the best emergency care possible whether it be surgery, stroke or trauma care.”
