Since the Auxiliary’s gift, almost two months ago, The Foundation has received various words of thanks from all departments who received a portion of this generous donation. With a mission “to provide comfort to and better the welfare of Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s patients,” The Auxiliary Board members voted on the opportunity that best exemplified their purpose. Their funds will enhance patient care in several departments including Radiology, Transitional Care Unit, Outpatient Surgery, Cath Lab, and Women’s Health. We take this opportunity to share one of those stories of the impact made to our Cath Lab.
A portion of the Hospital Auxiliary’s $23,500 donation made in February, will go towards new Audio Equipment in the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Cath Lab. Below, the Hospital’s Cath Lab and Interventional Radiology Manager Kristi Ramsey, RN shares the positive impact this gift will have not only for the staff working in this department but more importantly, the many patients receiving care. Pictured below is the new hands-free system in use by Medical Imaging Technician, Marcus Pedroza.
“I want to say THANK YOU very much for supporting the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Cath Lab, but even more importantly supporting our patients. The use of this equipment will allow the team to better communicate the immediate needs of each patient and the physician throughout their procedure. It also allows us to provide the safest environment, by keeping the room doors closed and the air flow movement to a minimum, further decreasing the risk for infection. The Auxiliary is an amazing group of volunteers, and we appreciate each one of them and the work they do throughout the organization every day.”
