Co-President Pam James, on behalf of the Lake Chelan Health Guild B, presented a check in the amount of $5,000 to Jaime Minnock, Chief Nursing Officer, and the hospital at the November 30th Board of Commissioners meeting. The meeting was held virtually via zoom and the check was presented virtually in the hospital Board room. The $5,000 donation will be used to fund a Hoyer Journey Sit to Stand Lift that is needed to assist patients early on in their care recovery for mobility issues. It will greatly assist staff in the hospital to get patients mobilized for more varied daily activities aside from just lifting from bed to chair. The Rehabilitation department and medical unit staff will be able to use this piece of equipment. Pam was accompanied by her Guild’s Co-President, Melissa Robins, Secretary Victoria Wheatley, Treasurer Nancy Parker (not pictured) and Past President Mary Ann Warren and long-time Guild B member Catherine Kent. Pam shared that Guild B wished they were able to raise more this year to donate, but with the COVID-19 challenges as they were, Guild B was glad to be able to present this $5000.00 check.
Lake Chelan Health is very grateful for the work that Guild B did to raise the funds for this equipment. Guild B for many years has also raised money for the hospital through their annual Home Tour event, which they have postponed the last two years due to the COVID pandemic.
