SSM Health Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt. Vernon has recently received a generous $60,000 donation from its auxiliary to enhance its respiratory equipment with state-of-the-art ventilators. The new equipment will provide life-saving breathing support for critically ill patients, including infants, children, and adults.
Trisha Barczewski, the hospital’s Respiratory Care Manager, expressed her gratitude for the auxiliary’s hard work in raising funds for the purchase of the advanced ventilators. She emphasized that the new equipment will enable highly skilled Pulmonologists, Critical Care physicians, and Respiratory Therapists to provide the most advanced ventilator support to patients in need of intervention.
The addition of these state-of-the-art ventilators further enhances the advanced technology available at SSM Good Samaritan Hospital. This allows the healthcare team to deliver advanced care for even the most critically ill patients. The donation reflects the auxiliary’s ongoing commitment to supporting the Mission of SSM Health, and the hospital expressed its appreciation for the auxiliary’s continued support.
