JCF grant funds hospital equipment purchase


February 22, 2019

MercyOne Newton Medical Center recently received a $4,000 grant from the Jasper Community Foundation to purchase a new patient stretcher for the operating room. The new stretcher is used to transport patients from outpatient surgery to the operating room, then to the recovery room and finally back to outpatient surgery.

Caregivers appreciate the new stretcher and the numerous features that enhance patient comfort and safety, as well as the ease of maneuverability of the stretcher.

“We are grateful to the Jasper Community Foundation for their support of this project,” said Leisa Zylstra, Foundation and Mission Manager. “Stretchers are used daily in the operating room and the addition of this new equipment has been a great benefit to our patients and caregivers.”
