How You Made a Difference through Baystate Health Foundation

June 01, 2020
BHF Funds 350

Here are some ways our donors’ generosity made a difference at Baystate Health.

  • Instead of having to stick a baby’s heel for blood each time an infant’s CO2 level needed to be tested, two TCM CombiM monitors were funded to provide non-invasive monitoring in the Davis Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
  • At Baystate Franklin Medical Center, 500 Halo Sleep Sacks were funded. These sleep sacks promote safe sleep for infants and reduce the rate of infant suffocation.
  • Baystate Noble Hospital joined Baystate Medical Center as the second oncology surgical site in western Massachusetts offering a more advanced surgical procedure, radioactive seed localization to diagnose breast cancer.
  • A portion of the purchase of a 3D mammography machine at Baystate Mary Lane Outpatient Center was funded through donors’ generosity.
  • Cardiac monitors were funded for the Baystate Wing Hospital Emergency Department, which provide the capability to care for patients in any of the 20 treatment bays.
  • The Acute Care for Elders program received funding to outfit its community room with items to make patients comfortable, from bookshelves and lamps to multi-sensory tools that aid in recovery.
