Health Services Foundation Board Approves Over $80,000 In New Equipment for Local Hospitals

Revised HSF logo ConvertedDuring its most recent meeting, the board of the Health Services Foundation breathed life back into five pieces of equipment for South Shore Regional Hospital and Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital.

The majority of the items funded are for respiratory therapy, including the replacement of a Critical Care Ventilator, which can be non-invasive.

“During the presentation to board members, respiratory staff taught us how the non-invasive function of this equipment has many positive outcomes, including a faster recovery times and less risk of infection or injury,” says Health Services Foundation Executive Director Arleen Stevens.

Respiratory Services had been borrowing the ventilator from another hospital until the funding for the nearly $36,000 item could be approved. The Foundation originally purchased the unit in 2009.

Funding was also approved for a new Pediatric Crash Cart for the Emergency Department at FMH.
