Each year, Baxter Regional Medical Center hosts a banquet to thank the
BRMC Auxiliary for their many hours of dedication and commitment to the
hospital and our community. The most recent 2016 BRMC Auxiliary Banquet
held on Tuesday, April 26, was no exception.
In yet another remarkable display of commitment to BRMC, the Auxiliary
announced they were pledging a gift of $150,000 to support the renovation
of the Baxter Regional Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Unit. With
this gift from the Auxiliary and many other donors to this campaign, the
unit will be upgraded and expanded to accommodate the growing number of
patients needing its services.
According to Dawn Tullis, RN, Baxter Regional Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation
Unit Coordinator, this service line at BRMC offers assistance for those
going through a wide range of cardiac and chronic pulmonary conditions.
From education to exercise, this unit has been able to take patients who
are unable to walk even a short distance at the start of their treatment
to walking through the doors of the unit completely unassisted. All workouts
are supervised and monitored by trained nurses and technicians to ensure
patients are safe and receive immediate medical care if an emergency arises.
The renovations to the unit are scheduled to begin on Monday, May 2.
