Annual Appeal to benefit Palliative Care
It’s not to late to support our 2015 annual appeal, Improving Quality of Life through Palliative Care.
Palliative Care is specialized medical care for people with serious illness. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative Care is provided by a specially trained team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment. This type of care is time intensive, expensive, and largely not reimbursed by insurance.
By meeting our goal of $50,000, we will be able to expand the non-traditional therapies such as music, massage, aroma, pet, and dignity therapy, which can provide additional comfort to our patients and their loved ones.
We have received great support from our donors, raising $40,000 thus far. Please consider making a year end tax-deductible gift today for Palliative Care, or one of the other many areas needing your support. Click here to make a donation now.
‘Walk Again’ Campaign
Mike Irwin, from the Wenatchee World, has done a wonderful story on the Esko™ Bionic Suit that was demonstrated live on Tuesday, July 1. Please click here to read the article and here to see the video of Dr. Ed Farrar ‘walking.’
The Foundation is raising funds to bring this piece of equipment to the patients and communities of North Central Washington. If you would like to help us reach our goal, click here to donate now and make sure to note that this is for the ‘Walk Again’ fund.
Infant and Child Security System Spring Appeal Campaign
The Foundation is continuing its mission to ensure the latest equipment, technology, programs and highest skill level for health care providers are prevalent in North Central Washington with our current spring appeal campaign.
This campaign is raising funds to update our “Infant and Child Security System” for the Mother/Baby and Pediatrics Units. The new security system will utilize the latest technology to ensure our patients’ safety and receive the best health care possible.
Fortunately, Central Washington Hospital (CWH) has never experienced the tragedy of an abducted infant or child and wants to prevent that from ever occurring. A state of the art “Infant and Child Security System,” using Radio Frequency Identification tags, WIFI network and a combination of alarms, locking doors and locking elevators, will greatly enhance security and safety for our families. The overall goal is to raise $158,000.
