What Your Funds Support

Your support is critical to the patients at CalvertHealth. Every dollar raised goes to support the hospital. Your gifts have supported numerous causes such as those listed below.

Behavioral Health Renovation Project and Services

Recognizing the growing need of mental health services for the community, the renovation of the Frank Miller Howes, MD Behavioral Health Unit at CalvertHealth Medical Center will be complete in spring of 2021. Once opened, the $5.2 million project will allow for expanded inpatient admission criteria for mental health patients in crisis. The new unit will showcase separate, secure therapeutic environments for adults and adolescents allowing CalvertHealth to accommodate more patients and tailor treatment needs specific to age groups.

Nurse Navigation

The nurse navigation program continues to grow as we serve the needs our oncology patients. During a patient’s cancer journey, their nurse navigator serves as the center of their care management from assisting with scheduling appointments to understanding the specifics of their diagnosis and treatment to connecting them to needed resources. In 2019, your support has to fund a Lung Cancer Navigator, Breast Cancer Navigator and Financial Assistance Navigator who are actively working side by side with our patients battling cancer.

Building on a Century of Care Capital Campaign

The Building on a Century of Care Capital Campaign has raised funds for the largest expansion and renovation project in the hospital’s history. The three-story expansion, which opened in July, houses spacious, modern private patient rooms, outpatient services, as well as areas for medical and support staff. Phase II of the project, to renovate the hospital’s existing patient rooms on Levels 2 and 2 is currently underway. It is anticipated the entire project will we complete in 2020.

Mobile Health Center

The Mobile Health Center was graciously funded by our donors and travels to underserved areas of our community to bring essential primary care services, dental, and prevention and wellness programs to residents who do not have access to traditional health care. While the Mobile Health Center will serve the entire community, it is part of a broader effort by CalvertHealth to shift the focus from “sick care” to “health care” where the long-term strategy is to provide education, outreach, and support to help people stay healthy to reduce the onset of disease and those with chronic illnesses manage them more effectively.

Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care

Opened in 2010, the Sheldon E. Goldberg Center for Breast Care provides access for patients to an experienced team of breast health experts and the most sophisticated technology available locally. Serving almost 900 patients annually, your gifts have helped support a number of initiatives including equipment, expanded facilities and patient financial assistance.

Radiology Expansion

Thanks to our donors, the radiology expansion became a reality by contributing funds toward the renovation of existing space as well as the 3,300-square-foot addition that houses more than $3 million in new state-of-the-art imaging equipment. Now patients can expect an enhanced check-in area for all patients arriving for diagnostic testing and new imaging equipment for cardiovascular interventional, digital radiology, nuclear medicine, CT scanning, and vascular ultrasound that includes the latest safety features.

Centrifuge Unit

The state-of-the-art Centrifuge Unit was funded by our donors to provide advanced technology which will help speed patient results to physicians for the diagnosis and treatment of everything from diabetes and heart disease to various types of cancer.

GetWell Network

Funded by our generous donors, the GetWell Network is an interactive educational system that provides individualized patient teaching tools and videos at the patient bedside throughout hospitalization. This state-of-the-art technology allows nurses and physicians to electronically supplement their verbal teaching with videos and interactive questionnaires to verify patient and family understanding.
