St. Lukes, “Sane Group” is having a fundraiser put on by the friends of “Sane” to help provide 2 rooms that are quieter and more secluded than the ER. The purpose is to provide help for those clients in physical, psychological and in an emotional crisis. They estimate the cost of the rooms to be approximately $10,000.00 to refurbish and furnish the rooms. These rooms need to be the best therapeutic and comforting environment possible.

How is this different than in the past? For the past 40 years patients have been provided for in the Emergency Department Exam room. The need is unique with privacy and comfort challenges. The “Sane” program provides specially trained RN forensic examiners, and has improved the quality and consistency of evidence collection. It take sup to 5 hours for exams and assault victims need more privacy and some comfort instead of a bed and curtain.
St. Lukes has provided the Greater Duluth-Superior Community a welcoming, safe and secure place to extend medical care. The option of participating with law enforcement to apprehend and prosecute perpetrators of sexual assault is important.
This press release is from the friends of “Sane.” It is a group which began in the St. Luke’s community and includes members from the community at large.
