A History of Impact from Your Generous Giving
Negative Pressure Room Retrofit 2020
An immediate, pressing need in March of 2020 was to retrofit four rooms at Estes Park Health to negative pressure rooms for the inpatient ward. This system ensures that when a COVID19 patient is admitted, the air in that patient’s room will not travel to the rest of the building, infecting other patients or staff. Estes Park Health Foundation funded this campaign with a combination of individual donations and grant money. The negative pressure rooms have been operable since April of 2020. These rooms give the staff at Estes Park Health the ability to treat COVID19 patients here in Estes Park rather than sending them to facilities in the valley.
3D Mammography Campaign 2019
The 2D mammography machine in Estes Park Health’s Diagnostic Imaging Department was at end of life in 2020. Estes Park Health Foundation fully funded the purchase of 3D mammography machinery and capabilities. 3D mammography has been shown to detect 20-65% more incidences of breast cancer than 2D, and, according to Susan G. Komen, 90% of women whose breast cancer is found in earlier stages will survive.
Emergency Capacity Campaign 2018
The Emergency Capacity Campaign is an initiative to purchase four new cardiac monitors for Estes Park Health’s Ambulance Service and three trauma stretchers for the Emergency Department (ED). Cardiac monitors are the foundation of how the EMS team can treat patients and communicate with the ED. The new trauma stretchers will allow ED staff to safely transport patients and dose medications. This initiative was fully funded at the end of 2018 with enough funds to purchase three patient transporters in addition to the cardiac monitors and trauma stretchers.
Estes Park Health Living Center Common Area Remodel 2018
Estes Park Health upgraded the Living Center dining room with new furniture to create a space for residents to comfortably dine and socialize. New dishes were purchased, as well as a buffet style service so residents can easily choose their food from a selection of entrees prepared daily by our Dietary Services Team. To facilitate a setting that feels more like home, Estes Park Health designed a living room to serve as a sanctuary for residents to read, enjoy quiet time and visit with guests. In addition, a new coffee table and love seat were added to the Activities Room.
Wound Care Clinic Upgrade 2018
The phenomenal efforts of the 2018 Crowns for the Care campaign and Paint Estes Pink raised enough money to purchase surgical-grade lighting for the Wound Care Clinic, a specially-designed exam chair for wound treatments and a cautery device. The Outpatient Wound Care Clinic is used to treat patients suffering from chronic wounds by using technologies such as water debridement, tissue grafting, compression wrapping, specialized dressing application and negative pressure therapy. Patients experiencing illness can develop wounds that are difficult to heal. The Wound Care Clinic treats patients in our community so they can stay close to home.
Estes Park Health Living Center Exam Room 2017
As a result of contributions by major donors, Estes Park Health Living Center now has a fully-equipped, elder-friendly exam room that allows Residents to receive medical care within the Living Center.
Estes Park Health Living Center Hospital Bed Campaign 2017
Because of generous gifts from individuals and businesses, Estes Park Health Living Center was able to purchase 35 new beds needed for their Residents. The Foundation raised $75,000 for this improvement. The longer, wider mattresses flip to allow Residents to choose a soft or firm side. In addition to providing comfort and support, the modern technology of these new beds, staff can now better maneuver and assist those in their care. The Estes Park Health Living Center Residents now rest more comfortably, improving their overall quality of life.
Two New Ambulances 2017
Ambulance service provides a vital service to the Estes Valley community, covering over 1,000 square miles. The Estes Park Health Emergency Medical Services crew travels to emergencies in the Estes Valley, Rocky Mountain National Park and surrounding communities. They also provide emergency transport for patients needing care beyond what Estes Park Health can provide. Through the combined efforts of the Quota Club of Estes Park and other donors, Estes Park Health was able to add two new ambulances to its fleet to better serve the community and the visiting population.
Infant Security Campaign 2016
Thanks to many generous individuals and businesses, the newest members of our community can experience a level of security that rivals the region’s largest birthing centers. This system employs the latest technology to secure designated areas. Any unauthorized attempt to leave a monitored area triggers an alarm and activates door locks. Parents and staff can focus worry-free on caring for newborns and the joys of family life. Donors provided more than 90% of the funds needed to upgrade the infant security system in Estes Park Health’s Birth Center.
