THANKS TO YOU

Highlights of what we’ve done with your philanthropic gifts in 2017-2018

Thanks to you - Memorial Hospital upgraded perinatal fetal monitoring systems providing the best and most cutting-edge technology for both staff and the patients of the Birthing Center. The purchase of two Philips perinatal fetal monitors, a base station, installation and staff training gives clinicians access to data at the point of need, from the patient’s bed, delivery room, central station, nurse lounge and/or provider’s home or office; the monitors enable the staff to send test data electronically to specialists outside the Hospital’s rural catchment area for consultation on high risk pregnancies; they furnish built in professional standards of care; and they offer a wide array of hospital system interfaces, which support access to a unified patient record for both maternal and newborn patients from wherever it’s needed, whether in the hospital or from a clinician’s mobile device. Obstetricians and pediatricians will have easy access from their offices to the condition of mother and baby in real time. In photo-Anne Howland, RN, Birthing Center

Thanks to you - the Miranda Center for Diabetes & Endocrinology purchased a new retinal scanner to help reduce cases of diabetic retinopathy. Nearly half of all American adults have diabetes or prediabetes and retinopathy is the leading cause of new cases of blindness in diabetic adults ages 20 to 74. A yearly comprehensive eye exam, means local diabetes patients will have access to prevention starting later this year.

Thanks to you - Lorinda MacDonald, APRNPMHNP, is the first behavioral health provider to be embedded in Memorial Hospital’s primary care practice fulfilling a tremendous community need for patients in need of psychiatric care and medication management. Hand in hand with the mental health crisis is NH’s well known opioid epidemic. These often go together as untreated mental illness can often lead to self-medication using other substances such as opiates. This highlights the need for an increase in both behavioral health and substance abuse treatment in the community, an initiative that will be led by MacDonald in her new role.

It’s all part of a helmet safety initiative to ensure the safety of our children. The Roger C. Clapp Memorial Ski Helmet Fund was established by his loved ones and other donors to fund this initiative.
