The Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation presented a check to the hospital board of trustees for over $100,000 for equipment upgrades at the hospital. A result of the approval of eight different grants, the funding goes to support direct patient care in multiple hospital departments.
According to Cody Sinclair, Chief Development Officer “The Foundation’s efforts to raise needed dollars are vital in countless ways. Sheridan’s strong history of philanthropy has helped to build healing environments for areas such as The Watt Dialysis Center, Griffith Emergency Department and Welch Cancer Center. It has helped ensure our expert physicians and teams throughout the hospital have the equipment and technology to provide the best patient-centered care possible.”
These specific unrestricted funds will help purchase needed equipment which will impact patient care through the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Cath Lab, Surgery, Outpatient Lab, and Radiology.
This funding was made possible by the generosity of the many people who support The Foundation’s Annual Membership program and sponsor Foundation events throughout the year like the annual golf tournament.
“Philanthropy has made so many projects possible for Sheridan Memorial Hospital, and ensures everyone in our community receives needed care,” Sinclair added Philanthropy has been a big part of Sheridan Memorial Hospital from the very beginning. In 1976, the Sheridan Memorial Hospital Foundation was formally established to provide continued leadership to ensure funding for capital building projects and patient care programs. These areas all help Sheridan Memorial Hospital meet the healthcare needs for our community.
