Emergency Department Expansion Groundbreaking

The kickoff of Emergency Department construction was celebrated with a Groundbreaking Ceremony on November 6th, with hospital and foundation leadership, staff, and community supporters in attendance. Pictured above in the ceremony are Ken Dalebout, Administrator of AGCH, Dr. Juan Reynoso, Medical Director of Emergency Services, Kath Tompkins, Chair of the Legacy Campaign, Montisa Phelan Lopez, Vice President of Philanthropy at AGCH, Kerin Mase, President & CEO of Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC), Julie Coleman, Chair of the AGCH Foundation Board, Rebecca Alarcio, Chair of the Community Board at MRMC, Villa Infanto, Vice President of Patient Care Services at AGCH, and Teri Reeder, Director of Emergency Services at AGCH.

The Emergency Department will soon be doubled in size as a result of the Legacy Campaign, Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation’s fundraising effort to expand and improve critical areas of the hospital including the Emergency Department, Acute Rehabilitation Center, imaging services, and cancer services. These improvements will be the result of years of planning, fundraising, and development.

The expansions, renovations, and equipment purchases supported by the Legacy Campaign will meet community and patient needs for decades. The Foundation launched the Legacy Campaign in 2014, and has since raised nearly three quarters of its $6.5 million goal with support from philanthropic community members, local businesses, and hospital employees and volunteers.
