WNGH Foundation’s Run4Health 2015

SAVE THE DATE FOR RUN4HEALTH!

After a lonnnng and cold winter, it’s time to enjoy the spring weather and start moving again! On Saturday May 2nd, lace up your runners and come join us for the annual WNGH Foundation’s Run4Health. Registration will begin on April 1st.

Why participate? Well, one of the many reason is that it’s for an amazing cause, since all proceeds will be directed towards the WNGH Equipment Fund! Another great reason is that the event promotes physical activity, which we all know has great benefits! Physical activity not only improves your physical health  but can help significantly improve your mental well-being and reduces stress. It can help strengthen your heart, your lungs,  increase energy levels, help you maintain and achieve a healthy body weight and  even improve your outlook on life!Run4Health2015

*Not interested in running or walking? That’s okay, you can still  contribute as a volunteer and donate a few hours of your time for a great cause

Stay tuned for more registration details!

 

 

$50,000 donated from the WNGH Foundation for the purchase of IV smart pumps!

On behalf of the WNGH we are very pleased to  announce that $50,000 was  donated from the WNGH Foundation for the purchase of our new IV smart pumps. Essentially, these smart pumps are computerized and a major advancement in safe administration of medication. Our decision to purchase IV smart pumps for the WNGH was based on quality improvement, patient safety and best practices. This is one among many initiatives that will prevent medication errors. These IV pumps will be used in all departments throughout the hospital including oncology, palliative care, acute medicine and of course in our Emergency Room.

The IV smart pumps are quite expensive, as the  standards pumps are approximately $3650, and the software for the pumps is an additional $57, 115. Thus far, we have purchased 20 pumps, once they are set up and in circulation, we are looking to purchase another 9 pumps!


With that said, this $50,000 from the Foundation has really kick-started our purchase and will permit us to purchase some additional pumps. The staff and patients will greatly appreciate these new pumps,
given that our current pumps are quite outdated. On behalf of the hospital, we are very pleased with the efforts of the WNGH Foundation and the contributions by so many community members that have made this purchase possible.
