St. Mary's to hold ribbon cutting ceremony for new Epworth Crossing facility 01/21/2014
(Evansville, IN) – A ribbon cutting ceremony for St. Mary’s Epworth Crossing will be held Monday, January 27th at 1:00 p.m. Keith Jewell, President of St. Mary’s Health, and Gwen Sandefur, Executive Vice President, will make remarks at the ceremony.
Located at the Lloyd Expressway and Epworth Road near the current St. Mary’s Convenient Care location, Epworth Crossing is a comprehensive outpatient facility dedicated to promoting wellness throughout the community.
Services at Epworth Crossing will include:
The newly expanded Breast Center, which will move from its current location and feature the latest advanced technology
Urgent Care Epworth, which will nearly double in size from the current Convenient Care East
A Wellness Center, with classes and programs such as yoga and tai chi that focus on body, mind, and spirit
Lab and imaging services – including digital x-ray, ultrasound, CT, and 3T MRI—the most advanced MRI in Warrick County
Primary care and specialty physician offices
A medical equipment and retail store
“The opening of Epworth Crossing represents a major milestone for St. Mary’s,” said Jewell. “As a healthcare organization, we are charged with focusing our attention on outpatient care and a total approach to wellness – not just treating patients in the hospital. This facility was created with an eye toward the future of healthcare.”
In addition to the array of services and state-of-the-art technology offered, what makes Epworth Crossing so unique are the details that create a warm, peaceful atmosphere designed to promote healing and overall well-being. The Breast Center features a fireplace and adjacent Healing Garden, both donated by the St. Mary’s Auxiliary. TVs in areas such as lab services will show waterfalls and other calming images, and the MRI includes a larger bore and floor to ceiling window – all designed to help ease anxiety. Natural lighting and soothing earth tones are used throughout the building, and the walls will feature unique artwork, much of it created by local artists. Coffee and snacks will be available in the reception area to make the experience more enjoyable for patients and visitors alike.
“When we were planning Epworth Crossing, we went directly to the community to listen to what it wanted from a healthcare facility,” said Sandefur. “We know that our community is looking for convenient, comfortable, personalized care. Epworth Crossing was designed to meet those needs.”
