Archbishop Daniel Cardinal DiNardo Bestows Blessings on Hospital Emergency Center and Women’s Imaging Pavilion
by Lori D. Wilems

His Eminence, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, D.D., S.T.L., Archbishop of Galveston-Houston presided over a Blessing and Dedication Ceremony held Tuesday, August 19, 2008 to commemorate the grand opening of the Emergency Center, Diagnostic Imaging & Women’s Pavilion at CHRISTUS St. John Hospital.

The 20,000 square foot expansion project, which broke ground in May, 2007 and was completed in July 2008, provides the Bay Area community with advanced women’s imaging services and expanded emergency department capabilities.

Tom Permetti, Hospital Administrator, recognized the generous financial contributions of The Harry S. and Isabel C. Cameron Foundation for their lead gift and CHRISTUS St. John Hospital Volunteers for their donations. Tribute gifts in memory of Mrs. Annie Epstein by family and friends were recognized and gifts by Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word – Houston in memory of Mrs. Carolyn Blanche Fuhrman. Permetti thanked the Schreiter family for gifts honoring their daughter, Ella Nicole Schreiter.

As an added benefit, the new expansion “will also help to enhance our collaboration with the M.D. Anderson Clinical Cancer Center for a cutting edge continuum of care,” according to Dr. John Gillespie, chief of radiology at CHRISTUS St. John Hospital.

The expansion boasts a new HDx1.5 Tesla MRI and VCT 64 Slice Scanner to provide patients the best technology in the hands of the finest imaging professionals. The new Women’s Pavilion offers full-field digital mammography with a comfortable and private waiting area. The Emergency and Chest Pain Center is nationally accredited by the Society of Chest Pain Centers.

Special guests at the dedication were members of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word – Houston, clergy from local church parishes, CHRISTUS Health executives and board leadership, CHRISTUS St. John Hospital volunteers and associates, elected officials from City of Nassau Bay and surrounding areas, former patients, staff and administration, community leaders and Hospital supporters.

CHRISTUS St. John Hospital is a faith-based, Catholic health care facility located in Nassau Bay. Its mission is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. CHRISTUS Health, St. John Hospital’s parent company, is one of the 10 largest Catholic health systems in the country with 23,000 employees. The system, headquartered in Dallas, operates more than 40 hospitals and facilities in six American states and Mexico, with assets of more than $4.1 billion.
