Grand View Health, Sellersville, received more than $60,000 for its Maternity Department and Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
American Heritage Credit Union donated the money for new equipment to provide mothers a deeper connection to their newborns in the first few hours and days.
The money allowed Grand View Hospital to purchase new Nära bassinets by Stryker, which promote closeness by allowing skin-to-skin contact between newborns and their mothers at the bedside.
The hospital also bought new Nicview cameras which give parents a 24/7, secure view of their baby in the NICU for times when they cannot be with their baby. These cameras are made possible through donations by American Heritage Credit Union and the Lily’s Hope Foundation.
“Time and again, our friends at American Heritage Credit Union rise up to support vital healthcare needs here in our community,” said Doug Hughes, interim president and CEO of Grand View Health. “They are truly interested in learning more about the areas where they can really make a difference to enhance the care experience for all of our patients.”
“So much has changed since my wife and I were new parents,” said Bruce Foulke, president and CEO of American Heritage Credit Union. “Being able to support young families with this innovative technology and equipment to make their experience as comfortable, convenient and safe as possible is gratifying both personally and professionally.”
