Michelle-&-Bob-w.checkThe Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation (Foundation) reached its goal of raising $250,000 for a new Telemetry Monitoring System for Mendocino Coast District Hospital (MCDH) patients.  At Winesong 2016, the Foundation raised $210,000 in designated donations for the Telemetry Monitoring System – a record high!  The Foundation went on to continue to fundraise for this important patient care system through a year-end appeal.  Michelle Roberts, Executive Director of the Foundation, presented a check for $250,000 to MCDH CEO, Bob Edwards on April 13th.  The equipment has arrived and plans are well under way to install the new system.   

MCDH had identified the current system as having reached the end of its useful life, and with no capacity to upgrade or add on to the present system.  A replacement with state-of-the-art technologies, including additional monitoring parameters and alarm abilities, was needed to provide patients with the clinical and technical support that their conditions require and offer early intervention into medically challenging and life threatening situations.  Thanks to the generosity of the Foundation’s Winesong and local donors, the MCDH is now able to install this new, potentially life-saving system.   
The Mendocino Coast Hospital Foundation serves residents and visitors to our coastal area--from inland to Comptche, south past Elk and north past Westport. The Foundation raises funds for the Hospital in a variety of ways, and these funds are used to reimburse the Hospital for purchases of needed equipment.  For more information, contact Michelle Roberts at 707-961-4688 or ed@mchfoundation.org
