The 2011 Annual Giving Campaign encourages board members, friends, grateful patients, employees and businesses to Think Pink! With a goal of $75,000, the Foundation chose to designate the 2011 Annual Giving funds toward the purchase of a Digital Mammography System. Unlike conventional screen film, digital mammography utilizes computers and specially designed digital detectors to produce sharp, high-resolution images which can be adjusted for brightness and contrast. In addition, digital images are immediately available for evaluation by the Radiologist; thus, decreasing the turn-around time for patients to receive their mammogram results. For more information please see the Foundation Thinking Pink brochure.
The previous Annual Giving Campaigns were a great success and the Foundation hopes with the community's continued support to repeat the accomplishments of preceding years. The 2010 Campaign exceeded it's goal of $40,000 for the purchase of a Portable Ultrasound Machine by raising $63,531.91. The Portable Ultrasound Machine has expanded Steele Memorial Medical Center's diagnostic ultrasound capabilities from only once per week to 24/7 and provides significantly improved services for obstetrics, emergency medicine, general surgery, and other departments throughout the hospital. The additional monies were used to purchase a Cardiac Treadmill Monitoring System which is essential for assisting and aiding in diagnosing coronary artery disease, stress induced arrhythmias, functional exercise intolerance, and other cardiac conditions.
The 2009 Campaign brought in $41,853.84 which allowed for the purchase of valuable equipment for the Rehabilitation Department. This equipment includes: a Biodex Balance System, MyoTrac Infiniti sEMG, Upright Stationary Bicyle, Elliptical Trainer, Treadmill, an Upper Body Ergometer, Wall Gym, Computer on Wheels and much more. The 2008 Campaign, through your generosity brought in $56,466.14. This money benefited the community and Steele Memorial Medical Center by allowing the purchase of a state-of-the-art Wireless Biotelemetry System. The 2007 Campaign achieved the unprecedented by raising $86,876.00 for the purchase of Computerized Radiography Equipment. The 2006 Campaign raised $32,290.56 for the purchase of a Fetal Monitoring Unit for our Obstetrical Program.
The money gained from each of our campaigns supplies Steele Memorial Medical Center with modern tools to continue providing quality, compassionate healthcare.
