Tri-City Hospital Foundation supports Tri-City Medical Center year-round by providing the most advanced technology to elevate patient care. Recently, our community's generous support allowed us to provide three new devices — portable ultrasounds, high-flow oxygen delivery systems, and professional-grade air purification systems — to assist patients in the Emergency Department.
Bedside ultrasounds also improve outcomes in the case of emergencies such as ruptured ectopic pregnancy, ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, pericardial effusion, and internal injuries in trauma patients. They provide real-time visualization of vital structures during invasive procedures.
The Airvo devices provide further utility in the treatment of acute flares of chronic respiratory illnesses related to diseases such as congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema, and pneumonia.
These portable air purification systems provide an alternative to hospital isolation rooms, allowing Tri-City Medical Center’s healthcare heroes to bring isolation to a patient. Portable isolation reduces high-risk patients' exposure to COVID-19. It also contributes to the management of airborne illnesses such as tuberculosis, measles, chicken pox, and other respiratory infections.
Any amount donated to the program gifts the honoree a beautiful Guardian Angel pin to wear with pride and to know their kindness and care is appreciated and admired!
For those fighting cancer, wigs are more than just hair; they provide a sense of normalcy and privacy during cancer treatment by preventing people from asking questions about their diagnosis.
