21st Annual Charles B Eberhart Memorial Golf Classic Set for October 6
August 26, 2015
The DeKalb Medical Foundation will host the 21st Annual Charles B. Eberhart Memorial Golf Classic on Tuesday, October 6 at Capital City Club (Crabapple) in Woodstock, GA.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Building the Future of Emergency Medicine; When Every Second Counts campaign to upgrade the Emergency Department at the North Decatur campus. The campaign will raise $2.1 million to renovate and reinvent the ED so that evaluations and care are administered more efficiently to impact more lives.
The DeKalb Medical Foundation encourages anyone with questions about sponsorship and participation opportunities to call 404.501.5764 or view the sponsorship brochure online at www.dekalbmedicalfoundation.org.
The new ED architecture features a “Super Fast Track” check-in for urgent care patients and a separate immediate care area for patients experiencing stroke, heart attack or other life-threatening symptoms. This streamlined admissions process provides patients more privacy and quicker coordinated care whether arriving by car or ambulance.
“The campaign will help DeKalb Medical serve our growing community’s needs and the rising usage of emergency rooms for urgent care needs,” said DeKalb Medical Emergency Department Medical Chief Sofia Khan Iqbal, M.D. “No matter who you are or how sick you are, we’re here.”
With over 64,000 ED visits in 2014, the renovated facility is expected to help DeKalb Medical treat more patients in less time ensuring that no matter what their need, they receive the highest level of attention and personal care.
