Aria Health Golf Classic Raises Money to Help
Fund Torresdale Campus
Emergency Department Construction
Annual event raised over $400,000 for capital project scheduled for completion in spring 2014.
The Aria Health Golf Classic enjoyed another successful year as it raised over $400,000 and hosted more than 150 golfers at Huntingdon Valley Country Club in support of the planned expansion of the Aria Health-Torresdale Emergency Department. This was the most money ever raised in the event's 31-year history.
The $37 million construction project, slated for completion in Spring 2014, will expand capacity of the Emergency Department at Aria Health-Torresdale from 30 to 42 beds. Two separate entrances – one for walk-in patients and one for patients arriving via ambulance - will also be created, enabling Emergency Department staff to rapidly address the unique needs of all patients. Other additions include: a separate waiting area for patients and their families awaiting test results; a CT scanner; and two traditional radiology rooms.
As part of the project, the Outpatient Center at the Torresdale Campus will also be renovated, while the current Emergency Department will remain open and fully operational as the renovations progress.
