Phillips 66 made this donation in part to help ensure the safety and preparedness of the community in emergency situations. The expansion of the AGCH Emergency Department is part of the hospital’s current Legacy Campaign to expand the Emergency Department, increase the size and capacity of the Acute Rehabilitation Department and upgrade diagnostic imaging technology.
“The Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation is very grateful for this tremendous gift,” says Montisa Lopez, Vice President of Philanthropy, AGCH Foundation. “This brings us closer to achieving our goal and improving patient services.”
“We recognize the importance of having the latest technologies and resources available for the community,” says Paul Adler, Manager of Communications and Public Affairs, Phillips 66. “We’re thrilled to contribute to Arroyo Grande Community Hospital in providing the best possible care.”
The Emergency Department at AGCH was last updated in 1986 with a space designed to accommodate 16,000 patients per year. Currently, however, the Emergency Department receives over 26,000 patient visits per year. The expansion will address this issue and accommodate future needs by doubling the size of the Emergency Department.
AGCH is committed to delivering compassionate, high-quality, affordable health services and partnering with others in the community to improve the quality of life. By teaming with AGCH, Phillips 66 is upholding its company values, which include safety, honor, and commitment.
AGCH is a 67-bed hospital with a 20-bed acute rehabilitation facility that has been offering health care services to Central Coast residents for more than 50 years. The full-service medical facility, located in the heart of San Luis Obispo County, is recognized for excellence in acute rehabilitation, orthopedics, emergency care, and cancer care.
