We’ve all been in the presence of a newborn; in awe of how precious, beautiful and delicate life really is. Those little eyes, ears, fingers, and toes we gush about represent the future leaders of our region and society.

At Wright Memorial Hospital, the number of new arrivals is increasing. Much of this is due to the outstanding physicians who serve our local hospital and the beautiful new facility available to the expectant parents.

The Wright Memorial Hospital Foundation recognizes the importance of the growth and development of our future generations. As a result, the Foundation is pleased to introduce the “Equipped for the Future” Campaign, a $300,000 initiative to strengthen the quality and efficiency of the OB Department of Wright Memorial Hospital by implementing an OB Centralized Monitoring System and purchasing a new ultrasound machine.

“The Wright Memorial Foundation has noticed the continuous growth in the number of deliveries in our facility and recognizes how important it is to ensure improved services in the OB Department,” said WMH Foundation Development Officer Matt Osterthun. “These vital additions to OB are much needed in terms of quality and patient experience.

It’s bringing big city-like technology to the fingertips of the families in our rural region.”
The OB Centralized Monitoring System will give the doctors and nursing team the ability to monitor multiple patients at one time in one location while ensuring an even safer and satisfactory experience for both the mother and baby. Such technology also will allow the patient’s data to be stored electronically for future health care needs.

“The safe evaluation of patients during labor and delivery is the key to a successful obstetric service at any institution, particularly when it comes to high-risk pregnancies,” said WMH Physician Dr. Esgar Guarin. “The acquisition of a central monitoring system will improve safety beyond our current standards.”

The new ultrasound machine will give parents the ability to view the development of their baby in three-dimensional images versus the current two-dimensional capabilities, increasing the quality and satisfaction of the experience. The ultrasound machine also will be vital in examining the body’s internal organs, including the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, and bladder. Detecting pain, swelling and infection in these organs is the common practice for the machine.

“We are an institution committed to high standards of care,” Guarin said. “Up-to-date diagnostic testing in the care of patients will keep us at the high standard that the community deserves and our parent health system expects.”

The “Equipped for the Future” Campaign is already underway, and tax deductible contributions may be mailed to the Wright Memorial Hospital Foundation at 191 Iowa Blvd., Trenton, and additional information may be obtained by contacting Matt Osterthun at 660-358-5706.
