A Legacy of

Help, Hope and Healing O

n October 14, 2006, after months of careful study and deliberation, the Board of Trustees of Cass Medical Center recommended that hospital leadership pursue plans to construct a new medical center to replace its 43-year-old facility.

In response to this recommendation, the Cass Medical Center Foundation Board of Directors engaged the services of Jeffrey Byrne & Associates, Inc., in January 2007 to conduct a feasibility study for a capital campaign to help fund a portion of the new medical center. Since the new facility was to be financed primarily through the sale of revenue bonds, with the hospital’s ongoing operational revenue pledged as collateral for debt, the Foundation Board desired to assist with construction costs as much as possible in order to alleviate overall debt and enhance areas identified as being especially important to area residents.


s a result of the feasibility study, which was concluded in May 2007, the Foundation Board voted to conduct a capital campaign to help fund the Emergency Department, Chapel, and Healing Garden at the new facility. The campaign, which became known as the Help, Hope and Healing Campaign, was launched in October 2007, and was led by a volunteer Steering Committee of fifteen community leaders from across the region. From October 2007 through April 2009, the Steering Committee and hospital leadership made over 25 public presentations and met individually with many people around the region to share the vision for the new medical center and invite charitable investment in this historic project. Over 400 donors responded enthusiastically by pledging more than $1.27 million in support for the Emergency Department, Chapel and Healing Garden. A new medical center for Cass County and the region was in the planning for more than a decade. What began as a vision more than 10 years ago has culminated in a beautiful, state-of-the-art medical center that will serve patients and their families well for years to come. As the vision for the medical center’s future evolved, the hospital’s name was changed to Cass Regional Medical Center in August 2008. This Donor Honor Book pays tribute to the volunteers and donors who shared this vision and committed their time, energy and financial resources to making the new Cass Regional Medical Center the very best it could be. Their selfless giving has resulted in a legacy for generations to come.

The Emergency Department The increased demand for emergency services was one of the key drivers in developing the new medical center. When construction of the new facility began, the Emergency Department at the old facility was operating at nearly 170% of capacity. The department, which was designed to handle between 4,000 and 5,000 cases per year, was treating over 11,000 cases annually. Features of the new Emergency Department, which donors have helped make possible, include: •

An increase in the number of exam areas from 5 to 11, with nine private rooms and one large cardiac treatment room that can be partitioned to accommodate two patients. It also has rooms specialized for the treatment of trauma, orthopedic, and obstetrical/gynecological cases.

A covered entrance for patients arriving by private car, and a separate, larger garage that will easily accommodate today’s larger ambulances.

A triage room off the main waiting area where a nurse will assess a patient’s health concerns and collect medical information in a private setting.

In-room admission. After being triaged by a nurse, the patient will be escorted to a private exam room. There, admitting personnel will come to the patient to complete the remaining necessary forms while the nurses and physician determine a plan of care.

A children’s waiting area with activity tables for learning and entertainment.

Security officers on-site 24 hours per day.

A larger, fenced-in helipad that is heated so that air ambulances may safely land in inclement winter weather.

A Legacy of

The Chapel

Feasibility study participants identified spiritual care as an important part of the total healing process. The new Chapel is larger, and is conveniently located on the second floor, just off the rotunda. Its proximity to the intensive care and medical-surgical units provides easy accessibility for patient families, visitors and staff. Features of the new Chapel include: •

Nearly one-and-a-half times the space of the old hospital’s chapel, with additional seating for prayer and meditation.

Natural stone and wood accents, with indirect lighting.

A window with a view of the Healing Garden below and rolling hills in the distance.


A Legacy of

The Healing Garden

Recent research has shown that incorporating abundant natural light and elements of nature in the design of healthcare facilities improves the healing process for patients. The concept of bringing the “outdoors inside” has been integral in shaping the overall design of the new medical center. One of the key ways this has been accomplished is through the development of a new Healing Garden to complement the Memorial Garden, which has been recreated at the new site using elements from its previous location on the old campus. The new Healing Garden features: •

A reflecting pond and fountain that prominently incorporates the natural element of water in the healing environment.

Beautiful plantings that complement and enhance the visual appeal of the building’s stone façade.

A winding path lined with teak benches that provides patients, visitors and staff a place for physical and spiritual renewal.

The Help, Hope and Healing Campaign Donor Wall, which is both an art feature and a recognition of those donors who pledged $1,000 or more for the new hospital’s Emergency Department, Chapel and Healing Garden.
