News and notes: Augusta Health

On the move

As the Emergency Department Expansion and Renovation Project moves from behind-the-scenes/below-the-ground work to a visible phase, one of the first steps is to move the current ED entrance so the construction can begin on the addition.  This move is currently scheduled for July 10.

The Public Entrance will move from its current location around the corner to the current ambulance entrance.

 

augusta healthTeens active this summer at Augusta Health

Throughout the month of July, Augusta Health’s Teen Volunteer program will be in full swing.  Teen volunteers, who are usually about to enter their sophomore-senior years in high school, spend five weeks at Augusta Health.  They volunteer 20 hours each week (Monday-Friday, 8 am – noon) learning more in-depth about a specific healthcare career of interest.  Each volunteer is assigned to work in one department throughout the five-week experience.

The annual ACES (Augusta Career ExplorerS) Middle School Health camp will be the last week in July—Monday through Friday, July 24-28, from 8 am until 12 noon.  In this experience, students who have just completed grades 6 through 8 spend the week learning about a variety of healthcare careers.

It’s hoped that our summer experiences for students—first to explore widely during camp, then to investigate more in depth as a Teen Volunteer—will help grow’the next generation of those serving the local community in the healthcare field.
