2017 Philanthropic Funding Needs
Each day brings astounding new possibilities in health care, from clinical breakthroughs to innovative models of delivery. With continued donor support, Chilton Medical Center can sustain and grow its role as a true pioneer, shaping the future of health care and bringing the most promising medical advancements to our hospital and community.
Chilton Medical Center Foundation is currently raising funds for several initiatives aimed at keeping the medical center on the forefront of 21st century care while meeting the region's burgeoning health needs. If you so choose, your gift can benefit one of these exciting projects - and make a meaningful difference in the lives of our patients:
Intensive Care Unit and Progressive Care Unit Renovation: $400,000
All 12 patient rooms in the Intensive Care Unit will be expanded for enhanced functionality and visibility to nursing staff while remaining private. The renovation will also include a centralized nurses’ station, modernized lighting and upgraded furniture, fixtures, flooring and wall treatments.
Telestroke Program: $186,400
Since 2015, Chilton Medical Center has used in-transit telestroke to reduce the time it takes to treat a stroke by approximately 13 minutes – a factor that is estimated to save 30 million brain cells. We are looking to acquire additional telestroke devices to ensure that all individuals in our service area have access to this critical resource.
