Cape Regional Medical Center Emergency Dept. dedicated to philanthropist Larry Luing

The family of Larry Luing recently attended the name dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony of the Emergency Department at Cape Regional Medical Center.

Kevin, Timothy and Brian Luing and their extended families were joined by officials and board members of the Cape Regional Health System. Mayor Judith Davie-Dunhour of Stone Harbor presented the Luing family with a proclamation from the borough.

Cape Regional Medical Center’s $19.9 million Emergency Department and Radiology Department expansion includes the addition of nine emergency department patient bays and dedicated ultrasound, X-ray and CT scan for the newly named Larry L. Luing Emergency Department. The Radiology Department expansion includes a new state-of-the-art interventional radiology suite, 128-slice CT scan, special procedures suite and a fluoroscopy suite. The Radiology Department expansion is slated to be completed by early August.

“Through the Larry L. Luing Family Foundation, we look to honor our father and recognize his love for Cape May County with this gift to establish the Larry L. Luing Emergency Department at Cape Regional Medical Center,” Kevin Luing, Tim Luing and Brian Luing said.

“As we’ve seen through the decades, the Emergency Department serves not only the residents of the county but also the hundreds of thousands of visitors to the county during the summer. We applaud the Cape Regional Health System board of trustees for their foresight in expanding and upgrading the Emergency Department, as it is a critical resource for Cape May County. We are proud to associate our father’s name with Cape Regional Medical Center and hope that our gift will inspire others to step forward.”
