An updated waiting room in the Emergency Department at Baylor Irving.

The Katherine Carmody Trust has awarded $60,000 to the emergency department expansion project at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Irving, and the Roy and Christine Sturgis Charitable Trust has provided $50,000 for this project.

The Katherine Carmody Trust was created in 1957 by Katherine Carmody of Corsicana to support charitable organizations in Texas and has granted several million dollars to various organizations. Bank of America manages the trust.

“The Carmody and Sturgis trusts give grants that make our region a better place to live,  and we are so honored that they — and the Hillcrest Foundation in 2013 — chose to support the emergency department renovation and expansion at Irving’s only charitable hospital,” Irving Healthcare Foundation President John Drake said in a news release.

The Irving Healthcare Foundation raised more than $2.2 million of the total $25 million renovation and expansion cost. Leading the foundation staff was a strategic team of volunteers. Heading that team was Angela Enright, longtime donor and former chair of the boards of directors for both the foundation and the Baylor Scott & White-Irving hospital..

The Baylor Irving Emergency Department is one of the busiest in western Dallas County. The expansion will support the growth in patient visits to more than 100,000 per year.
