The Minutes Matter Emergency Services Campaign
What Inspires You?
Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center has one of the busiest Emergency Services Departments in Los Angeles County. To meet the surging demand for emergency care, we are planning for the future.
Providence Saint Joseph's Minutes Matter Campaign has been prodigiously raising funds towards its $78 million campaign goal in order to see this historic project come to life.
The Jaromír Střížka estate will name our new Emergency Department and the Cusumano family has generously stepped forward to name our Urgent Care Center. The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros. and NBCUniversal also have joined in committing seven-figure gifts to the campaign, among other prominent community families including the Romanos, McCormicks, Howards, as well as foundations including those of Bob and Dolores Hope, Ahmanson and Ralph M. Parsons. Our physicians have also come together to make a $1 million commitment.

Swifter treatmentsNew patient admission procedures and specialized units will diagnose and treat patients quickly, including a Fast-Track Unit whose specialized caregivers will quickly provide care for patients with urgent but simple-to-treat conditions.
More space for critical treatmentThe new Emergency Department will offer almost three times the current space, expanding from 13,800 square feet to 34,500 square feet.
More beds for our signature compassionate careWith the help of the Minutes Matter Campaign, we will move from 24 beds and 8 hallway beds to 44 emergency department beds and 12 urgent care beds.
Increased ability to treat more peopleThe new space will allow us to expand from nearly 72,000 visits per year to more than 93,000 visits annually in the emergency room and urgent care facilities.
Improved triageThe new Emergency Department will offer separate and specialized waiting and treatment areas for patients who are ill, injured, or require pediatric, geriatric or psychiatric care.
Sophisticated, on-site imaging and labsThe new space will offer faster diagnostics and vastly reduced wait times to expedite care including x-ray, ultrasound and CT scans.
Specialized treatment roomsThe new Emergency Department is designed with safe and comfortable isolation rooms for cancer patients and others who require a rigorously germ-free environment.
Innovative behavioral health servicesLicensed clinicians and two behavioral health units comprising a total of eight rooms will accommodate the needs of patients experiencing behavioral health challenges, and provide them with comprehensive care.
