Providence Saint Joseph’s event raises more than $500,000 for Minutes Matter More Than Ever Emergency Services Campaign
On Saturday, September 18, 2021, approximately 95 neighbors, friends and supporters of Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center gathered for a magical night in the gorgeous home of Don and Elizabeth Savant. More than $500,000 was raised for a new leading-edge Emergency Department and Urgent Care facility for the community.
Paula Davis, Minutes Matter More Than Ever Emergency Services Campaign Toluca Lake Committee co-chair, led the program with a message about the critical importance of a new Emergency Department that will benefit everyone in the community. Campaign co-chairs Edward and Murphy Romano followed with a moving speech about the excellent care Providence has provided their family. Hostess Elizabeth Savant then shared her family’s Saint Joseph story. Finally, board member Bonnie Hill, alongside husband Walter, also shared their moving personal story of how they became involved with Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center.
As the night continued, Eric McCormack gave a stunning and energetic cabaret performance, moving around the pool to engage the guests. The fabulous event also included a thrilling synchronized swimming performance from The Aquabatix.
“We are thrilled that our community has come together again to ensure state-of-the- art emergency care for our loved ones and neighbors,” said Davis. “It is a privilege to have Saint Joe’s there for us in our times of need and it’s a privilege to help them make that possible. And for Tolucans who have yet to give, I encourage you to join this vital effort.”
The Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center Emergency Department and Urgent Care facility are scheduled to be completed in Summer 2022 and will dramatically expand the capacity to provide emergency care. By having an Emergency Department side by side with an Urgent Care center, it will be easy for patients to access the appropriate venue for care, reducing wait times and enhancing patient experience.
