2020 Annual Fund supporting diagnostic lab equipment
The Winneshiek Medical Center Foundation has announced the 2020 Annual Fund donations will support purchases like new testing and diagnostic equipment for the Winneshiek Medical Center Laboratory. The Foundation’s goal is to raise $85,000 through the Annual Fund campaign.
Winneshiek Medical Center Laboratory staff collect samples and perform tests to analyze body fluids, tissue, and other substances. The 24/7 Laboratory staff are key members of outpatient and inpatient health care teams, unlocking important medical information that is pivotal to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Hally Neubauer, a Medical Laboratory Scientist and member of the WMC lab team, knows her important work is not just about the sample she analyzes, but the person in need of answers to their health concerns. She says, “We treat the child, parent, or grandparent you care about, even if we don’t see them in person. Our team cares deeply about our patients and we do our very best for them.” She adds, “In the midst of all the uncertainty surrounding us, please know your gifts to the WMC Foundation help with the future of local health care for your family, friends and neighbors.”
Chris Redenius, WMC Foundation President, says, “As demands for services such as lab work continue to increase, it is important we invest in our hospital to allow these essential workers to continue managing care promptly and safely. The current pandemic has put the importance of local care front and center in our lives. I hope you will join me and many other Annual Fund donors in making an impact in our local community. Together, we can get through this pandemic, and help our family and friends receive essential services right here at home at Winneshiek Medical Center.”
