                                                                                        NCHS Employees Donate Equipment!

Through the employee “Circle of Giving” payroll deduction program, NCHS employees recently donated two useful and important pieces of
equipment for two NCHS facilities in McVille.  
For the hospital, employees purchased a much-needed reclining wheelchair.   Reclining wheelchairs are important for patients to have access
to as they provide additional comfort and assist in pain control and pressure relief.  They are especially beneficial during long transports
allowing the patient to totally recline for sleep if desired.
For the care center, employees purchased a wheelchair scale.  All residents are weighed upon admittance to the care center and again on a
weekly basis as part of their overall health maintenance program.  Previously, the care center and hospital shared a scale which was not only
inconvenient but potentially compromised the accuracy of the scale.  
The employee “Circle of Giving” is a completely voluntary program where employees can have as little as $1 per pay period deducted from their
paycheck and donated to the Nelson County Health Services Foundation.   Equipment needs are evaluated by administration and department
heads.  Participants in the Circle of Giving program are given input into any purchases made with payroll deduction funds.  
“On behalf of the Health System Board of Directors, I wish to thank the employees for their generosity and commitment to the health system and
the people it serves,” said Bruce Bowersox, NCHS CEO.  


Thank You!
