Fundraising for Medical Equipment in Juneau County

Throughout the year, Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation raises funds to support the programs and services Mile Bluff provides to the community. The foundation gives individuals and businesses the opportunity to take an active role in impacting healthcare locally. The funds raised are put toward community events, scholarship programs and equipment purchases.

As a not-for-profit organization, the foundation wants to be transparent with donors about how funds are used. Below you will find the organization's annual reports as well as a list of our approved equipment purchases for the coming year.

Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation is grateful for the support of donors and the community!

Annual Reports:

2022 Purchased Equipment - $30,572

Procedure Table - $9,509

This procedure table keeps patients comfortable as clinical staff perform procedures in the clinic setting.

Traction Table - $8,091

Awarded to: Rehabilitation Department

Traction can be a vital part of the rehab process for patients with certain neck and back diagnoses. A traction table allows therapists to provide cervical and lumbar traction to patients to treat and relieve neck and back pain.

Bariatric Lab Draw Chair - $3,929

Awarded to: Necedah Family Medical Center

This chair will increase patient comfort and provide better ergonomics for staff as blood samples are collected.

Exam Tables (2) - $3,764

Awarded to: Mile Bluff Clinic

These exam tables keep patients comfortable, while allowing clinic staff to provide safe and efficient care.

Tympanometer - $3,380

Awarded to: Elroy Family Medical Center

A tympanometer is used to measure the health of a patient's eardrum. It measures the function and movement of the eardrum and the middle ear. This will allow the medical staff to do early assessments of ear health onsite, decreasing the need for patients to travel.

Theater Equipment - $1,100

Awarded to: Fair View Nursing & Rehabilitation Center

With a projector and retractable screen, a theater room will be created for nursing home residents.

Tumble Forms Feeder Seat - $475

Awarded to: Speech Department

The Tumble Forms Feeder Seat will be used to position infants when they are having a Modified Barium Swallow Study. Previously, this service would need to be referred to a different facility, but the new equipment allows the speech team to provide these studies in Mauston.

Training Bones - $324

Awarded Department: Education Department

These training bones are used to simulate use of intraosseous access for emergency patient care. Intraosseous access training is a part of Mile Bluff's Advanced Cardiovascular Life Saving (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (PALS) courses.

Please note: Every year, Mile Bluff Medical Center Foundation purchases around $70,000 in equipment for the medical center. In 2022, several remodeling projects are taking place throughout the organization and the foundation has chosen to set aside funds to support the remodeling of the Birth Center, Cancer Care, and Medical Imaging departments that would have otherwise been used to purchase equipment.
