The Community Foundation of Mount Vernon & Knox County has awarded a $5,000 grant to The Foundation for KCH for the “Labor of Love” campaign. This campaign has focused on raising funds to purchase new equipment for the KCH Birthing Center. The equipment list includes new maternal/fetal monitors, a SimMom birthing simulator, wireless maternal/fetal monitors and new HI-CARE e-carts.
“We are so grateful to the Community Foundation for this grant. The equipment will make such a big difference to our laboring moms and our clinical staff. We are humbled by the generosity of this community,” said Joanne Yates, RN, BSN, Director of the Birthing Center.
