Hospital bed project complete PDF Print E-mail

Last week, the fundraiser to purchase five new electric hospital beds was completed. This happened when Dan and Evelyn Gengenbach and Pam Holm donated to the project.

According to Ron Patrick, administrator of the Perkins County Health Services Foundation, the $22,660 fundraiser was supported by 31 donors. 

The project began June 4 and was completed on Aug. 23.

Hospital Director of Nursing, Dana McArtor, says that the new beds replace five older ones, which had been procured from a regional hospital several years ago. 

The old ones served their purpose, but it was time to replace them. 

The new ones are much more patient and staff-friendly than those replaced.

The following is a list of project supporters: 

Bob and Karon Bennett, Harvey Lovenburg, Thomas D. Buckley Trust, Jarrett and Cindy Malmkar, Louis and Virginia Coppersmith, Dorothy McArtor, Lois Dilky, Lamoin Meyer, Esther Epling, Mary (Katie) Miyamoto, Kenneth and Bonnie Erickson, Burle Newth, Dan and Evelyn Gengenbach, North Platte Orthopedic (Dr. Mark McKenzie), golf tournament net proceeds, Ruth Ochsner, Kristi Griffiths, Keith and Doris Olsen, Pam Holm, Margaret Parrish, Jessen Unlimited, Grady Robinson, Kermit Karns, Edwin Steinke, Brenda Kiolbasa, Donna Stivers, Arlene Kurkowski, Valeria Thayer, Bernard and Darlene Kuskie, Loyal and Ina Thompson and Lori Zeilinger.
