Big Give Gage

Mark your calendars for September 10th, 2019!

 

The Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation is proud to partner with the Gage County Foundation to create the first ever day of giving for Gage County..."Big Give Gage".  

 

The purpose of Big Give Gage is to grow philanthropy in the Gage County area and celebrate non-profits. Our First Annual Big Give Gage giving day will take place Fall 2019, on September 10th.

The goal of this community-wide giving event is to match Gage County area supporters’ passions and generosity with local nonprofit organizations already doing great work. Through the combined participation of all people who love and care about the area we call home, we can significantly impact the future of our beloved community. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum.

 

The Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation will use the Big Give Gage platform to fundraise for one of the busiest departments at the BCH, Labor & Delivery. 

The professionals at BCH rely heavily on advanced technology to provide quality care, safely and efficiently. We would like assistance to purchase two new Phillips brand Avalon CTS Wireless Fetal Monitors to provide quality care to the nearly 200 babies born each year at Beatrice Community Hospital.

We want to give Mom the best chance of having a successful and worry-free delivery. With traditional monitors Mom is required to have continuous monitoring but she is faced with having to be attached to the monitors and cords on the traditional fetal monitors, limiting movement. Studies show that frequent moving and re-positioning help the labor process. Wireless monitors are used on expectant mothers to give them the freedom to move freely while in labor. Using a wireless monitor gives nurses and doctors the ability to keep a close eye on baby's heartbeat and Mom's contractions, while Mom still has the independence to walk around, use the whirlpool, and change positions frequently. 

“At Beatrice Community Hospital, our nurses take pride in helping a new Mom to feel safe and comfortable during the big day. Any assistance with purchasing two new wireless monitors would help out greatly to continue to provide the great service our labor and delivery staff strive to provide.”  Jill Allen, OB Coordinator

The Phillips Avalon CTS Wireless Fetal Monitors cost over $11,500 each. Our goal for the Big Give Gage is to raise $23,000 and purchase two new monitors to replace the outdated monitors currently in use, and continue to safely welcome each and every happy little bundle of joy!
