The Heartland Community Foundation (HCF) once again has supported Rooks County Health Center in its efforts to provide the best possible healthcare, this time by awarding a $6,000 grant to RCH for an ECG (electrocardiogram) monitor.
The ECG will be used in cardiac stress tests which can detect the presence of abnormal electrical activity in the heart, which might indicate such problems as coronary artery blockages or damage to the heart muscle.
This latest grant follows a long list of life saving equipment that HCF has helped to supply for RCH patients. Over the past 4 years, HCF has provided funding for diagnostic, lifesaving and patient comfort equipment.
A partial list of such equipment includes privacy and noise reduction curtains for PACU, non-invasive jaundice meters for newborns, airborne disease protections for staff, CPR training and blanket and serum warmers.
Speaking about the impact that Heartland Community Foundation grants can make, RCH Director of Communications and Development said “The support from HCF is important for the hospital and for everyone in the region who relies on RCH to provide quality, compassionate healthcare close to home. We are extremely grateful to the Heartland Community Foundation for its dedication to helping provide optimum care and comfort for the people of Rooks County and the surrounding area”.
