2021 Campaign: A New MRI Machine
EPHF is raising funds to replace the MRI machine at Estes Park Health. Estes Park Health gives an average of 5-6 MRIs each day, and MRI is used to diagnose disease/injury, assess how a patient responds to treatment, and is the preferred method to view soft tissue and organs.
The current machine is 14 years old, near end of life, and experiences frequent downtime due to its age. Please see https://eph.org/campaigns/mri-machine/ to learn more or donate.
EPH Department Wish List
EPH department directors request over $3 million for capital funds every year, including equipment upgrades, needed to continue their work at Estes Park Health. EPH has an annual capital budget of around $1.3 million, so less than half of those requests are funded. If you’d like to support a department at EPH, please review the wish list below and contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-577-4370.
Estes Park Health Pediatrics
Estes Park Health Pediatrics needs a mannequin for their Neonatal Resuscitation Program. Newborn Anne™ is a mannequin that represents a full term, 50th percentile newborn female. She’s used for critical skills training required to resuscitate a newborn in the first 10 minutes of life. She can be intubated, have lines place, accommodate interosseous needles and chest needles in a realistic fashion. Her airway is designed to allow for all aspects of training in newborn airway management, including the use of positive-pressure airway devices, placement of ET tubes and LMAs. The torso includes functionality to relieve tension pneumothorax via needle decompression, and she has IO access in both legs. Her patent umbilicus has a manually generated pulse that can be assessed, cut, and catheterized for IV access. This tool is essential for EPH staff training.
Cost per Unit: $2,900 QTY Needed: 1
Estes Park Health Pediatrics
Estes Park Health Pediatrics needs a vision screener, which tests the vision of children as young as 6 months for problems like farsightedness, nearsightedness, blurred, vision, unequal refractive power, eye alignment, and unequal pupil size. Use of a vision screener is ideal for early intervention programs targeted at special needs, pre-verbal, and preschool children. Early detection can save a child’s vision. The vision screener provides results in seconds and can import and export vision screening records directly into EPH’s EPIC Electronic Healthcare Record system. Patients who need follow up care receive a one-page screening result to take to their eye care specialist.
Cost per Unit: $8,000 QTY Needed: 1
The Estes Park Health Foundation provides continuing education scholarships for Estes Park Health staff members who would like to increase their scope of practice. For example, if a Certified Nurse’s Aide would like to become a Registered Nurse, the Foundation can assist with tuition and books. The ultimate goal is to make sure that Estes Park Health has the best staff available for decades to come. You can even endow a scholarship, to ensure that it continues to support quality healthcare for years to come. If you would like to contribute to the Scholarship Fund, contact the office for details, 970-577-4370.
The Estes Park Health Foundation maintains an endowment to provide for organizational sustainability. There are funds in the endowment that are permanently endowed, and others that are board restricted and can be made available for future use as needed. Oftentimes, estate gifts go toward building the endowment unless the donor provides other instructions. If you would like to contribute toward the endowment fund, contact the office to discuss this opportunity, 970-577-4370.
Paint Estes Pink
Paint Estes Pink is a community effort to raise awareness and funds for Estes Park Health in the weeks leading up to the Rooftop Rodeo's Pink Night.
Each year the focus is to underwrite costs to make cancer treatment and care better for our community. Join Estes Park in support of cancer warriors and survivors during this campaign to raise funds for the care and comfort of Estes Park Health cancer patients.
The Foundation needs both restricted gifts, for specific purposes and unrestricted gifts that are more flexible. Unrestricted gifts give the Foundation the ability to deploy funds to the most pressing need. For example, if a piece of equipment breaks down, unrestricted funds give the Foundation the ability to help replace it quickly without having to do a special campaign to raise the money. If you would like to make an unrestricted gift, you can simply indicate that on your check. In addition, any gifts that are received with no instruction are automatically entered as unrestricted.
Contact the Estes Park Health Foundation using the option that is most convenient for you. Normal business hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
