Your Dollars at Work - July 2021

Your gifts to the Cardiology Fund helped heart patients, along with the staff of the Cardiology department, experience the benefits of a new stress echo machine!

The new machine, located at Ascension St. John Hospital, replaces the 12-year-old machine that is beyond its life expectancy; and parts that are needed for repairs are unavailable. If the old machine had failed, it would have resulted in delayed patient care and patient dissatisfaction.

The new stress echo machine has state-of-the-art software that provides more precise imaging and measurements, ultimately resulting in better care for our patients. This machine is used in the stress lab as well as for structural heart cases and transthoracic imaging for inpatients and outpatients. Thank you for making the purchase of a new echo machine possible!

Ascension Providence Hospital now has 24 associates certified to provide car seat education and installation checks in our community!

A Safe Kids grant received through the Ascension Providence Foundation was used to train 24 associates to become Certified Passenger Safety Technicians.

In 2019, Safe Kids Oakland County and Ascension Providence Hospital's Trauma Services department (Novi and Southfield campuses) held over 100 car seat inspection events in the community. More than 100 car seats were provided to families in need.

Yes, I want to help a patient in need!

Your donation will help provide a patient with essential needs that occur after their discharge from the hospital such as: prescription medications, medical equipment, gas for follow-up appointments, food, electricity and more, as deemed necessary by a social worker.

COVID-19 has greatly impacted our lives, and some patients have found themselves laid off or furloughed while trying to get the healthcare they need – without the resources to do so. Your gift today will help a patient who is struggling.
