Throughout the year, Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation gives individuals
and businesses the opportunity to take an active role in impacting local
healthcare. Fundraising is done through events, as well as through memorial
contributions, general donations, employee giving initiatives and more.
Each dollar raised by the foundation is put toward community education
and programs, scholarship programs, and medical equipment. Thanks to the
generous donations that were given in 2015, a number of items have been
approved for purchase and will be used to make a positive difference in
the lives of Mile Bluff patients and residents.
Adjust-A-Sink for Fair View Nursing & Rehabilitation Center
Regardless of your age, getting pampered is a relaxing treat. With this
in mind, the residents of Fair View Nursing & Rehabilitation Center
keep the beauty salon quite busy as they have their hair washed, set,
and even permed. Thanks to the generosity of Mile Bluff Medical Center
Foundation, the time at the salon is even more relaxing for those residents
looking to further enhance their natural beauty.
Recently, an Adjust-A-Sink system was installed at Fair View. As the name
suggests, the sink is adjustable and can move up and down to meet the
height of a resident. Prior to this installation, residents transferred
from their wheelchair into a salon chair, because the old sink was not
adjustable. Now residents can remain in their wheelchairs while having
their hair done, which makes the experience even safer for them.
It is through the generous donations of businesses and individuals, that
the foundation is able to purchase this equipment. Not only do purchases
like this improve the lives of Mile Bluff's patients and residents,
they also enhance the quality of care Mile Bluff provides.
