Ready to Care: Abbott Northwestern Hospital Foundation launches Critical Care Campaign
Abbott Northwestern Hospital Foundation is raising $15 million from the community to renovate, enhance and expand Abbott Northwestern’s Emergency Department in Minneapolis and Neurological Intensive Care Unit (Neuro-ICU).
This campaign will benefit patients who need specialized care for conditions that are life-threatening and require comprehensive care and constant monitoring.
The Emergency Department currently sees 50,000 patients each year. It must prepare to see 60,000 and more in the near future.
The Neuro-ICU needs to expand from 12 to 20 beds to support the future growth of stroke, neurovascular, epilepsy, neuro-oncology and spine surgery programs.
Gifts to the Critical Care Campaign will allow Abbott Northwestern to:
