We've gathered 24 high-need, high-impact projects spanning across INTEGRIS.
All they need is your support to become a reality.
A Project Chosen by Employees
Even though many care areas are included in YOU&I, we inevitably may have missed some. Project: YOU&I seeks to fund needs in these areas. Following the YOU&I campaign, INTEGRIS Foundation will collect project ideas from across the system. The project will be selected based upon greatest need by a committee of employees.
Cardiac Monitor StationA cardiac monitor station for the Burn Center acute care nursing station will enable nurses to monitor our telemetry patients in real time within the unit.
New Flooring & EquipmentThis project will replace existing tile that is no longer able to be properly cleaned and will replace broken rocking chairs for children and nursing mothers. New sensory tables will provide children the opportunity to engage in activities that nurture problem solving skills.
Online Training for PatientsThe ability to offer real-time consultation and training materials will greatly reduce the workload of physician and nursing staff as well as better educate ourpatient families.
Comfortable SpacesUpdating the furniture at Hospice House will provide families of patients in end-of-life care more comfort in a time when they need it most.
Security Glass for Emergency Department Nurses StationTo increase employee security and ensure patient privacy, safety glass will be placed around the nurses station in the Emergency Department.
Clergy TrainingBy better equipping clergy with knowledge about healthcare issues such as dealing with chronic illness, death, grief, Alzheimer’s, transplant and medical ethics; they will be able to understand the needs of their parishioners facing these issues and provide better counseling and care.
Walking Track & Playground RenovationsRenovation of the SHA outdoor area will provide a safe place for children and their families to enjoy outdoor activities. Adding new fitness stations, updated playground equipment, security cameras, picnic tables and a fresh fruit and vegetable program will improve the promotion of active lifestyles and family/community interaction.
Labor & Delivery Newborn WarmerHaving an in-room infant warmer in all of our delivery rooms will allow babies to remain with their mothers and help reduce NICU admissions.
Medical Equipment and MedsThrough the purchase of much needed medication and equipment, this project will allow us to improve the health of our most chronically ill patients in need as they transition out of the hospital and work toward being self-sufficient. (Benefits 5/50 patients at ISMC!)
