I was in St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Port Huron, Mich., today. Chances are you’ve probably never heard of it before. Well, this October, St. Joseph Mercy will complete renovations and open one of the nation’s first senior-specific emergency departments. It’s part of a project that was first piloted by Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Md., and has been a smashing success for elders, their families and caregivers at the hospital.
I took the opportunity to grab a quick hello from Karen Harris — stay tuned for more information when the ER opens in October!
