Transforming Emergency Care in Ozaukee

The Emergency Department at Ascension Columbia St. Mary's Hospital Ozaukee sees more than 18,000 patients every year - 42% of whom are age 65 years or older. These are our grandparents, parents, friends and loved ones. 

With your help, we will transform the Ozaukee Emergency Department into the leader of geriatric-friendly care.   

Your gift will create a sensitive environment that lessens stress by providing: 

  •  New, less intrusive medical equipment and softer lighting to help reduce disorientation in patients

  •  Accessible railings for better mobility, stability, and balance

  • Dimmable lighting, noise reducing tiles and calming visuals to lessen stress

  • Comfortable patient beds and recliners

  • Soft, skid-free flooring to create more stable environment

  • Personal care coordination and follow-up care management support to ensure when patients leave the Emergency Department they are in good hands.  

Because of your generosity, we will continue to provide exceptional patient care for a population that needs it the most - our seniors.
