PVH is a small hospital with a big heart.

We invite you to explore five projects that would each have a significant impact on the health of your community.

EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT CARDIAC CARE

Arctic Sun Temperature Management System: $60,000

The Arctic Sun Temperature Management System is a non-invasive temperature management system that is used to induce hypothermia in patients that have experienced sudden cardiac arrest or who are at risk for ischemic brain damage. Therapeutic hypothermia has been shown to prevent complications and improve outcomes.

Three Fetal Heart Rate Monitors: $50,000

There are over 400 babies born each year in PVH’s Family Birthing Center. New state-of-the-art fetal monitors will read uterine and fetal activity (including fetal heart rate) and have enhanced features for monitoring temperature, oxygen saturation, ECG, and non-invasive blood pressure. The monitors will allow PVH to continue to deliver a high quality birthing experience.

INFECTION PREVENTION

BioCon-750 Bladder Scanner: $10,000

A bladder scanner is a portable, hand-held ultrasound device that can perform a quick, easy and non-invasive scan of the bladder to measure urine retention. It is a helpful tool in avoiding costly and invasive procedures such as catheterization or cystoscopy. By reducing the frequency of these invasive procedures, the risk of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) is greatly reduced.

HEALTH EDUCATION

Patient Channel Subscription: $35,000

The Patient Channel is the largest and most comprehensive in-hospital health education television network used by healthcare providers today. Access to the educational content of the Patient Channel will improve health outcomes, increase patient satisfaction, meet compliance requirements, and reduce hospital readmissions. This subscription would be active for 5-years.

EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT

Physical upgrades: $100,000

With nearly 19,000 Emergency Department visits every year, PVH has stayed ahead of the curve with life-saving advances. The Emergency Department is the primary gateway to our hospital. We are planning a series of upgrades to the ED’s physical environment to better ensure dignity, privacy, safety and comfort for patients and their families.
