2018 Annual Fund
As a nonprofit hospital, Cheshire Medical Center relies on the generosity of people like you. We’ve been here for 125 years, caring for the health and wellness of the region. Today, we hope you will be there for us.
Community giving helps Cheshire Medical Center provide a broad range of specialty medical services and maintain high standards for patient safety. All of which supports our commitment to providing you with exceptional care, close to home.
Today, we are asking the Community to come together around an important need – to help Cheshire Medical Center purchase mechanical lifting equipment to benefit our patients and caregivers. Patient care lifts will ensure everyone – patients and staff – are safe and comfortable. Your donation will support our commitment to providing you with exceptional patient care, close to home.
According to the Department of Labor and Statistics, more than 35,000 nursing employees injure themselves every year as a result of moving or lifting patients who are unsteady on their feet or immobile.
“It is critical that we practice safe lifting for both our patients and our staff,” says Jackie Ethier, MS, RN, Director of Inpatient Services and Safe Patient Handling Team Co-Leader. “Having more mechanical lift equipment available at Cheshire Medical Center will help ensure our patients and nursing staff are safer, reducing the potential for injury, while maximizing clinical outcomes.”
Your support moves us closer to our mission of providing clinical and service excellence, collaboration, and compassion for every patient, every time.
An investment in Cheshire Medical Center is an investment in your community. Won’t you please show your support with a gift today? And remember – every dollar you give stays right here to benefit local patient care.
