Lovelace has a solution to the potential overcrowding at University of New Mexico Hospital — enter into a bed-sharing agreement and save the taxpayers $146 million.
Lovelace Westside Hospital opened its renovated emergency department (ED) Friday, and it includes a kid-friendly area with four private exam rooms dedicated to children and their families.
A trip to the emergency department can be scary for sick kids, and their parents.
Lovelace Westside Hospital has just completed a makeover project designed to bring a little color and cheer to the experience.
Characters like Crush and Squirt from the Disney Pixar animated movie “Finding Nemo” adorn the wall in a corner of the emergency department waiting room, a TV shows children’s programs and kids can draw with colored chalk on a wall-mounted blackboard.
Lovelace Health System is offering to share beds with patients from the University of New Mexico Hospital to ease possible overcrowding.
In a letter sent last week to UNM Hospital, Lovelace president and CEO Ron Stern proposed a bedsharing deal that would involve transferring patients to Lovelace when the hospital becomes overcrowded.
A spokesperson for UNM Hospital tells KOB that while they are looking at the letter, they have serious concerns about the wellbeing of patients.
