Preparations have been underway for weeks at Sagam Community Hospital (SCH) to ready the new emergency wing for our patients. The entire SCH team worked hard to put the finishing touches on the emergency room including our new reception and triage areas and our 14 new emergency room beds. This new system allows us to treat patients based on the severity of each case, resulting in more effective and efficient healthcare.
