The monitor and new waiting room furniture were purchased using grant funds provided by the Davis Health System Foundation.

Christmas Comes Early to Broaddus Hospital

PHILIPPI – The Davis Health System (DHS) Foundation is making the holiday especially bright for Broaddus Hospital with a $10,000 gift to be used for patient care enhancements.

The DHS Foundation Board of Directors met in November and appropriated grants to affiliates of Davis Health System including the $10,000 to Broaddus Hospital which has been ear-marked for two purposes: to purchase a new carbon monoxide monitor and new furniture for the Broaddus Hospital waiting room.

Mike Bell, executive director of the DHS Foundation said the group makes these gifts once a year.

“Each year we receive undesignated gifts from donors and we have special events to raise money for these grants,” Bell said.  “Facilities, like Broaddus, request grant funds for purposes they feel important to improving care and patient lives.  It is our mission to “pay it forward” by sharing our good fortune for needs within the Davis family.”

Broaddus Hospital Chief Executive Officer Dana L. Gould, M.H.A., R.H.I.A., C.H.C., said Broaddus Hospital is thrilled to have the support of the Davis Health System Foundation.

“Their contributions have helped us improve the comfort, safety and care provided to our community,” Gould said. “We are very grateful for their support.”

Haley Grogg, R.R.T., T.T.S., Registered Respiratory Therapist/Pulmonary Rehabilitation Coordinator at Broaddus Hospital, said the carbon monoxide monitor will be used for their smoking cessation program.

“The carbon monoxide monitor is an important tool to help patients be successful in their journey to stop smoking.  We know the detrimental effects of tobacco addiction, and we hope that with the monitor we can increase the rate of “quitters” in our program,” Grogg said. The equipment is vital for both patient and employee wellness efforts.

Grogg said Broaddus Hospital offers a pulmonary rehabilitation program five days a week.

“The generosity of individual donors and the corporate sponsorships of our events help provide the funds used for these grants,” said Bell.  “Our donors, both designated and undesignated, truly make a difference in the local healthcare experience.  We appreciate the kindness and generosity of so many throughout the year.”
