2013 Foundation Accomplishments

Electronic Medical Records for the Emergency Department:

In 2013, The Memorial Hospital Foundation received a $50,000 grant from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to implement add-ons and interfaces associated with the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system being implemented in the Emergency Department. These interfaces increase liking capabilities and add medication, allergy, and patient vitals to the MER. The grant award included a 50% local match from The Memorial Hospital and The Memorial Hospital foundation to enhance Colorado’s emergency medical and trauma service system. Peabody Twentymile Mining Company and Trapper Mine, Inc. also provided funding for the initial purchase of the EMR.

Children’s Health and Wellness Programs:

Thanks to local foundation, we were able to protect the heads of over 200 children in Moffat County with new bike helmets. In 2013, The Memorial Hospital Foundation received a $2,000 grant from the Nathan B. and Florence R. Burt Foundation and a $1,000 grant from the Yampa Valley Electric Association Consumers Care Program. The helmet drive was held August 17th at the TMH Back-to-School Children’s Health Fair.

The TMH Foundation sponsors local Missoula Children’s Theater performances with approximately 60 local elementary students each year.

Additional Equipment Purchased:

  • Cardiac Ultrasound for the Emergency Department
  • Equipment for orthopedic surgery
  • Water heating and cooling pumps and pads for Surgery
  • Crib for Pediatrics
