Cabinet Peaks Medical Center Foundation starts departmental grant program

The Cabinet Peaks Medical Center Foundation recently started a departmental grant program to help support medical center departments it hadn’t yet had a chance to help.

The program was created earlier this year when the Foundation needed to find a use for the remaining balance of the Mission Fund account.

Since the program began, the Foundation has purchased a treadmill for cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, a IO vascular access system for the acute care and obstetrics units, a traction table for Troy Rehabilitative Services, and a battery sweeper for the environmental services department.

The Foundation is also purchasing a new wheelchair scale for the Senior Life Solutions program.

For more information about the Foundation and its campaigns, contact Kate Stephens at kstep@cabinetpeaks.org or 406-283-7140.
