She has her mom's eyes. Her dad's mouth. And your generosity.
We love babies. And we love that so many are being born at the Trinity BirthPlace at Bettendorf because it means our community is thriving. But it also means we're running out of room. Now's our chance to work together to give the tiniest members of our community the best beginnings possible. This $5.5 million project will be partially funded by generous donors like you.
In our first year, more than 100 babies were born at Trinity BirthPlace at Bettendorf. That was more than 10 years ago. Last year, the BirthPlace swaddled 796 bundles of joy. Within a year, the number will top 1,000.
In the area we serve, the population most likely to need obstetric care - those ages 20 - 44 - is expected to grow up to 9.8 percent in the next five years.
The BirthPlace currently has one operating room dedicated to C-sections. A second C-section suite will be added to accommodate our community's growth now and into the future.
As our population grows and our patients have babies later in life, we need to expand the Neonatal Special Care Unity to accommodate our smallest, most fragile new citizens.
This expansion is important for our community. Perhaps most importantly, when babies get a good beginning, they tend to be healthier throughout their lives. This lowers the need for health care interventions and leads to reductions in health care costs, which builds a healthy, thriving community.
Best Beginnings is the first step in our larger promise to provide the best outcome for every patient every time.
The Trinity Fund
Make your annual gift today and support your community hospital! Each year, thousands of Quad Cities residents donate to help Trinity with their most urgent needs. This includes things such as fetal monitors for the BirthPlace, education for new requirements for healthcare professionals, and equipment upgrades so we have the latest technology for our patients and you!
You Did It!
Thanks to the generosity and caring of you, our wonderful donor, your new Emergency Department/Heart Center began welcoming patients April 2015!
Originally announced in January, 2013, Trinity officials formally broke ground on the 90,000 square-foot, 3-story expansion in June 2013.
The new space includes an all-new state-of-the-art emergency department with two trauma bays to treat more than one profoundly injured patient at the same time; a comprehensive Heart Center with cath labs, surgery, cardiac rehab and education; and a Crisis Stabilization Unit with six psychiatric patient safe rooms, interview rooms, and a "living room" area that will help calm those in crisis.
Your support helped raise $6.75 million for this amazing Quad City resource. It would not exist without you.
For all the patients and family members who will benefit every hour of every day, thank you!
