Chairman's Message

Chair Lisa Van De Hey

Dear Friends,

It has been a very productive three years for Orchard Hospital with the addition of many new services such as ultrasound, Dexa Scan, digital x-ray, MRI, digital mammography and now the cardiovascular program with expanded hours.

State of the art technology has been added thanks to the community using the hospital. The most recent purchase is the five defibrillators being used in the Emergency department, operating rooms, Med-Surg, the Medical Specialty Center and Hovlid Skilled Nursing. As Chairman of the Foundation, I am proud that the foundation has been a part of many of the new improvements, the remodeling of the lobby and Medical Specialty Center, the purchase of a new surgical table, operating room lights, anesthesia machines, new gurneys, new patient beds and the renovation of all of the residents rooms in the Hovlid Skilled Nursing Center.

A brand new Physical Therapy Department is now located in the Medical Specialty Center. Behavioral Health Services are also now available.

The Electronic Health Records addition was a major project for the hospital which means records are now stored electronically and can be immediately sent to other medical facilities should a patient find themselves in need of medical care elsewhere.

Orchard Hospital Foundation is committed to financially contributing to the hospital for additional purchases and improvements, most notably, the "Champions" project.

The "Champions" project is the capital campaign for new equipment for the emergency department.

Our goal is to raise $1 million in three years and with the supportive community we have, we know it can be done for the future of our town, our children and grandchildren.

We appreciate your support and look forward to you being a part of the "Champions" project.

Thank you for your continued support,

Lisa Van De Hey
Chair of the Orchard Hospital Foundation
