Foundation Funds in Action
Programs and Initiatives
The Sanpete Valley Health Care Foundation focuses on raising funds for the medical equipment needs of Sanpete Valley Hospital. Learn more about the important projects that have been made possible through donations to the Sanpete Valley Health Care Foundation.
The Foundation donated $18,000 towards the purchase of a new ultrasound machine for Sanpete Valley Hospital. State-of-the-art technology awaits patients in need of ultrasound services. The new machine, purchased in 2003, allows physicians to better determine the status of an unborn child, view tumors and growths, and diagnose a wide variety of illnesses. In the words of Dr. Gary Cole, "An ultrasound machine, such as this, allows physicians to provide top quality medicine."
During 2000, the Foundation donated $17,000 towards the purchase of a new anesthesia monitor. Surgical patients are now monitored on the latest technology. The patient's vital signs are constantly monitored, giving the anesthetist valuable information regarding the patient's condition.
The Foundation donated $15,000 towards the purchase of a new mammography machine in 1999. This valuable screening device is used to detect breast lumps, tumors, and cancer. Thanks to the Foundation, state-of-the-art mammography services are now available to women on a regular basis at Sanpete Valley Hospital.
Heater Probe for EGD
The Foundation donated $3,000 towards the purchase of a new heater probe to be used during surgical EGD procedures at Sanpete Valley Hospital. The heater probe allows the surgeon to control any bleeding that may occur during the procedure.
The Foundation donated $3,000 towards the purchase of a dermatome. This medical device allows the surgeon to perform skin grafts in a safe, efficient manner. More efficient surgical procedures are able to be performed at Sanpete Valley Hospital due to the addition of this piece of medical equipment.
Fetal Heart Monitor
