The Regional Medical Center Auxiliary has funded three new items for the hospital, totaling almost $15,000 in donations.
RMC’s Lab Department purchased a 4 bay plasma thawer, which assists in the transfusion of blood products that are important to help clotting. The addition of the 4 bay plasma thawer will help better stabilize critical trauma patients.
The Auxiliary also funded the installation of a beautiful feature wall in the Sheppard MRI Suite. The Auxiliary was also able to fund a satellite radio system for the new suite. This allows patients to wear MRI-compatible headphones during their scan and listen to any music they choose.
And the last donation from the Auxiliary was for a shatter-resistant TV enclosure, which wraps around a normal TV.
Dollars for these donations stem from Auxiliary fundraisers like the Collective Goods Pop Up Sale held earlier this week, as well as sales from the HILLTOP Gift Shop.
