Local businesses have built a legacy in their relationship with the hospital since 1929 when a local business owner donated $1000 for the purchase of anaesthetic equipment. The hospital’s first gift from a business owner set the precedent for many to follow. This dedication has never waivered even though equipment costs have dramatically increased.
Today, the cost of an anaesthetic machine exceeds $125,000. Medical technology continues to evolve, offering patients better quality of health care, more options, and improved outcomes. Technology is truly the game-changer in health care and we need to keep that technology current to keep our community healthy.
The difference between a good hospital and a great hospital lies in the strength of the community that stands behind it.
