In April, the Cambridge Community Foundation awarded a $2,400 grant to the Fort HealthCare Cambridge Clinic to upgrade the equipment used for taking care of broken bones. The new equipment makes the delivery of care more comfortable for patients.
The equipment that the clinic uses to cut casts off has been replaced with a newer model, which features a vacuum attachment, so that cast dust is contained when the equipment is used, and not permitted to float around in the air. Additionally, a more comfortable procedure chair has been acquired, providing patients with a more restful and comforting place to receive care.
Mike Rumpf, President of the Cambridge Community Foundation, states, “The grant represents the Cambridge Foundation’s continued commitment toward our community medical services. The Foundation has a long history of supporting our local medical facility, and we wish to strengthen that relationship through our desire to assist in improving the wellness of our community.”
Michael S. Wallace, Fort HealthCare President/CEO, is very grateful for the Cambridge Community Foundation’s generosity. “Thank you to the Cambridge Community Foundation for their ongoing support of the Fort HealthCare Cambridge Clinic and our organization’s Mission. I’m excited about our partnership to positively impact the health of the Cambridge community.
