Thank you to all Circle 100 & Men’s Guild 100 Members! Circle 100 brought 200 women together to donate 100% of the $20,000 proceeds raised to the OB department — new bassinets, a new bilirubin monitor, and new comfy couches for partners. Men’s Guild raised $11,000 with proceeds going to EMS, including a new digital display advanced airway device for placement of life-saving breathing tubes, one for each ambulance; new mounting arms that protect patients during ambulance transport from flying equipment. Between the two groups we raised a record amount, and we owe it to you and our incredible community for your support.
Thank you, George & Beth Morris, for your investment in Rehabilitation Therapy! Your $5,000 gift purchased therapy stairs, a special mat to make providing therapy to pregnant women easier, and new equipment to work with stroke and TBI patients.
Save the Date! The 23rd Annual Healthy Futures Dinner Auction is Saturday, November 10 at the Cloverleaf Hall in Enterprise. Join us as we raise money for a new Ultrasound, at a cost of $130,000-$150,000. The new system will replace an aging system and provides a number of new benefits, including:
- battery pack mode so ultrasound can quickly be wheeled down to ER for scans during emergencies, and technicians no longer have to power down and power up the unit amid scattered cords as physicians try to work on a patient;
- recognizes tissue density changes to provide better diagnostics;
- holds images from prior scans so can easily compare and measure;
To provide premier care, we need to invest in the best equipment. We are counting on you, our supporters, to help us have a great fundraising event! If you have a vacation rental or time share or other item to put in the Live Auction, give us a call at 541.426.1913.
