(2019) | It's the great 2X the Impact Hospital Bed Matching Gift Challenge
2020 Update, VIEW HERE: Bed Delivery Video
This October, 32 Hill-Rom beds (totaling $362,640.00) replaced ALL the beds in our Medicine Unit- thanks to donors like YOU!
So far, with the help of our Volunteers and support from our community, we’ve purchased 32 of the 123 standard and specialized beds that need replacement. Cost of a bed replacement…$10,000. Cost of a specialized bariatric or ICU bed…from $16,000 to $65,000.
"In the great 2X the the Impact Hospital Bed Matching Gift Challenge, the Volunteers of SGH will match your donation to the Hospital Foundation bed fund DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR, up to $150,000. That will help pay for 30 new hospital beds, the first step in replacing all 133 patient care and specialty beds.
PLEASE DON"T SLEEP ON IT! At 10, 15, 20+ yeras our current beds are in constant use and rapidly deteriorating. WITH NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING to purchase new beds, your support is essential-and will go twice as far right now!"
