Mayers Intermountain Healthcare Foundation Awards Grants

The Mayers Intermountain Healthcare Foundation recently awarded $37,726 in grants to various Mayers Memorial Hospital District departments.

  • Mindray Vital Sign Monitor (x2)                    Acute                           6643
  • Electric Steamtable (Burney Annex)              Dietary                        2135

  • SRM Sport Rehab Versaclimber                     Physical Therapy        5295
  • Muscled Joint Model Set                                Physical Therapy         447

Services in these departments at MMHD will be enhanced by the new equipment available. For example, the Respiratory department’s purchase of a new BIPAP machine will allow the department to provide the best possible care to patients who are in the early stage of respiratory failure or respiratory compromise. This can help to improve and support their respiratory status without the need to intubate and transfer the patient.

The Acute Nursing department received two new Vital Monitors, which are used in the daily care of patients. The equipment monitors essential vital signs efficiently and effectively for burse assessment to aid in quality patient care.

The Outpatient Medical Services department received a grant to purchase a Bariatric bed, which will aid in patient safety and comfort while receiving wound care, IV infusions or other outpatient services.

These awards were available through the revenues generated by the Lucky Finds Thrifts & Gifts store, as well as the good works of the many volunteers and hours they contribute. Our volunteers at Mayers play an important role in providing quality healthcare to the communities we serve. Their gift of giving makes a valuable difference in all those who come in contact with them.
