2022 Capital Equipment Campaign
Thank you for your support in 2021. We had an exceptional year and were able to help the hospital purchased all the required equipment on last year’s Capital Equipment List. We have almost completed the Orthopaedic Surgical Program Matching Campaign for the Orthopaedic equipment.
Every year the Foundation works with the hospital to help them fund the required highest priority needs of Capital Equipment. To help add new technology to improve care, we are asking for your continued support and cannot do it without your generous gifts. The Government does not fund Capital Equipment.
Below is a list of some of the equipment required for 2022.
Defibrillators are a life saving device that is used during a cardiac arrest. They deliver an electric shock to your heart to restart the heart in a normal rhythm. These are kept on our code blue carts to be taken anywhere in the hospital when an Emergency occurs. @$21,500 each, 1 required.
A Colonoscope is used to perform endoscopy procedures (specifically colonoscopies). This is the camera used by the surgeon to visualize the colon during the procedure. @$40,000 each, 2 required.
A slit lamp is a special microscope and light and is utilized by physicians when patients present to the Emergency Department with injuries to the eye. Physicians can look for injuries in the front and inside the eye. The most common reasons for a slit lamp exam in the Emergency Department is to look for foreign bodies in the eye and to treat flash burns (welder’s flash). @$19,000 each, 1 required.
Cataract Trays contain all the equipment needed to perform a cataract replacement surgery. In the 2021-2022 fiscal year, we performed just under one thousand (1000) cataract replacement surgeries. @$3000 each, 3 required.
Portable Patient Lift and Ceiling Lift
These patient lifts provide for safe transferring of patients who are unable to ambulate themselves. Using a patient lift prevents injuries to both patients and staff, and allows patients to be out of their hospital bed and be comfortably positioned into a chair or stretcher as needed. The ability to move patients safely with these lifts prevents complications that arise due to immobility such as skin breakdown and falls. @$12,500 each, 1 required.
Recliner Tilt Chair
A recliner/tilt patient chair provides a comfortable, safe positioning chair for patients. This chair is used to mobilize patients that have a greater risk of falling and/or skin breakdown. @$4,000 each, 1 required.
Allows for accurate administration of fluids and medications to patients through an intravenous. IV pumps are able to deliver large or small volumes at precisely programmed rates. @$5,500 each, 5 required.
