Emergency Response - San Pedro
At Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center,
we have made considerable progress on our emergency
department expansion project in San Pedro
Thanks to the generosity of our philanthropic community, we completed the $4 million fundraising campaign and work is underway on an unprecedented renovation and expansion that will serve the San Pedro community for generations.
The funds for the emergency department expansion will have a tremendous impact on providing care for our community during critical times by adding valuable space for urgent treatments. The expansion will nearly double our capacity by increasing patient beds from our current 16 to 28.
We experienced project delays due to the pandemic, though are delighted to share that construction resumed in 2021. The construction team is currently working on updates to the building facade and relocating staff areas. Work has also begun on the new entry, reorienting the reception to 7th Street and the waiting room area. A triage space and vertical treatment bays, which will expedite care, are being installed.
Our mission here at Providence Little Company of Mary is to support the health and wellness of those we care for from throughout the South Bay. Through the support of donors like yourself, we ensure that everyone in our community can benefit from leading-edge compassionate care.
