Washington Court House, OH – June 14, 2018 – Fayette County
Memorial Hospital (FCMH) Foundation purchased two pieces of equipment
recently for various parts of the hospital.
The Women’s Wellness Center received a mammography chair. The unit
was ordered from Europe and will be very beneficial to patients who are
unable to stand for long periods of time. “Positioning is very important
when doing a mammography or biopsy and can be tedious, but with the chair
we can position a patient and complete their procedure faster,”
said Radiology Leader Robin Benson.
The second piece of equipment purchased is an AccuVein Vein Finder. The
unit replaces the older model which was purchased by the FCMH Auxiliary.
“The lab, the Emergency and other departments will all be using
this unit for blood draws or IV access,” said Niko Hagler, Laboratory
Leader, “the newer, smaller and more improved model will greatly
improve patient care.”
The FCMH Foundation is a 501(c)3, established to not only ensure the hospital
continues to provide premier care to patients but that it has to resources
continue to expand on that care and capitalize on new advancements in
medical care technology. The Foundation uses donations to support the
Hospital in enhancing patient care services, providing state-of-the-art
equipment, contributing to expansion and renovation projects, supporting
the development of community programs that will improve the health and
well-being of people in the communities served by FCMH, and advancing
healthcare education for the community.
Fayette County Memorial Hospital is a Critical Access Hospital (25 bed
hospital) with over 30+ healthcare providers, complete with a full spectrum
of healthcare services.
