Renewed State Approval for Franciscan Health Olympia Fields’ Pediatric ED
The Illinois Department of Public Health recently renewed Franciscan Health Olympia Fields’ Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics (EDAP) status.
“We are thrilled again to receive EDAP approval for re-accreditation,” said Franciscan Health Olympia Fields Director of Nursing and Emergency Services Cindy Mele, RN, MSN. “Respect for life and compassionate concern are among the core values of our healthcare ministry. We are blessed to be able to care for these vulnerable young patients and their families. We thank the IDPH for the honor.”
The recognition follows a rigorous recertification process and indicates the hospital’s emergency department has the essential resources and capabilities in place to meet the emergency and critical care needs of seriously ill and injured children.
“The contributions Franciscan Health Olympia Fields has made to the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Facility Recognition program during the past several years is recognized and appreciated,” Evelyn Lyons, MPH, RN, EMSC manager for the Illinois Department of Public Health said in her recent letter to hospital officials announcing the renewal.
Franciscan Health Olympia Fields’ EDAP status will remain in effect through 2026.
