16th Annual CKNX Health Care Heroes Radiothon Another Success for AMGH

The Alexandra Marine & General Hospital Foundation is extremely pleased to announce another successful Radiothon Campaign.  This year the Foundation was raising $50,000 towards the purchase of new IV Pumps for the AMGH.  Following the on-air portion of the Radiothon on October 21, the Foundation had raised $30,000.  Following that day, the Foundation was overwhelmed by the desire of the community to make sure that the goal was reached.  Individual donations continued to come into the Foundation.  Many local businesses also stepped up and took part in the Community Challenges, where businesses pledged donations to the Foundation and challenged other businesses to do the same.    Ultimately, $51,000 was raised and will be used to purchase six of the required IV Pumps.

The AMGH Foundation would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the individual donors, service clubs and local businesses, who ensured another successful campaign.  The generous spirit of our community continues to make quality health care close to home a priority by supporting the Foundation’s efforts to purchase priority patient care equipment at AMGH.

New IV Pumps for the AMGH

The Alexandra Marine and General Hospital has an urgent need to replace its current IV Pumps.  An Intravenous Pump is used to administer medications, nutrients, blood products, and fluids to patients.  The pumps allow a patient to safely receive fluids,
blood products and nutrients in the precise amount and time they need.    Alexandra Marine and General Hospital relies on this technology to assure we can provide the best possible outcomes for the patients we care for.

One Patient's Experience

Jerry Hall knows first hand what IV Pumps are used for and can attest to how important they are.  He has plenty of experience and knowledge.  Jerry has a condition that affects the production of his red blood cells and he receives regular blood transfusions at AMGH.
