St. Mary’s Giving Circle funds priority need

She Shares More is a network of like-minded women making a difference in our community by investing in healthcare at St. Mary’s General Hospital. It is a new initiative that raised $25,000 with its 25 members in its first year. 
 
In December, the group met to hear speakers from St. Mary’s present three funding priorities.  They voted to replace the platelet incubator/agitator in the laboratory which ensures platelets are stored at the required temperature with constant agitation. The device provides continuous temperature monitoring and an alarm system ensuring we always have platelets on site for cardiac procedures and trauma patients.
 
Members enjoy a number of benefits throughout the year including education and social events.  This group will also empower and educate women to create awareness around women’s health issues and ultimately improve health care in their community.
