IVCH Gets Grant Money For New Equipment

Posted by wlpo on December 20, 2010

While plenty of additions are visible on the outside of Illinois Valley Community Hospital, there’s a lot going on inside too.

New equipment to help nurses move patients more safely is coming thanks to the IVCH Foundation.  The Foundation is dishing out over 47 thousand dollars in grants this year.

Nearly 12 thousand dollars is going to buy patient safety items including things to help with patient transfers.  A 23 thousand dollar grant is being given for a new maternal monitor in the OB unit.

Two smaller grants are going towards a new pediatric gym and treadmill.
