2014 Funding Initiatives
Sutter Solano Medical Center
ENHANCING DIAGNOSTIC AND SURGICAL CAPABILITIES
LED Lighting for Surgical Suites - $341,000
The best philanthropic investments are the ones that address multiple needs. For example, Sutter Solano would like to add advanced LED lighting to the operating rooms. Surgical team members benefit by working in an environment free from shadows and heat generated by traditional light bulbs. This is important for patients as they want the peace of mind that physicians are operating in the best environment possible. Also, Sutter Health benefits by adding equipment with lower maintenance costs and is more energy efficient compared to current lighting.
Vacuum Devices - $117,084
State-of–the-art vacuum suction systems safely remove fluids during surgical procedures, promoting patient and clinician safety by reducing the risk of exposure to bodily fluids.
New Ultrasound Machines - $88,356
The Foundation seeks funding for two new ultrasound machines to help OB/GYN physicians to better identify ovarian and uterine masses, as well as to provide images of fetal development during pregnancy.
Bladder Scan Equipment - $15,251
Used to measure volume, bladder scanners quickly and non-invasively help diagnose common urological issues, assess urinary retention, help prevent unnecessary catheterization, and reduce rates of catheter-associated urinary tract infections.
ADVANCING CANCER CARE
New Infusion Center - $40,000
Providing access to quality care close to home is a priority for Sutter Health. As demand for infusion therapy in Solano is increasing, Sutter Solano Cancer Center is expanding to Fairfield inside the Medical Foundation facilities. Charitable support is needed to fund construction and equipment.
CARING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Community Healthcare Fund - $10,000
This fund increases access to care by supporting transportation services for patients who are unable to drive to doctor appointments and treatments. The fund also supports health education programs, health screenings, support groups and other wellness programs for the community.
