The Stormont-Vail Foundation has been awarded a grant of $33,079 from the discretionary funds held by the Lewis H. Humphreys Charitable Trust, Bank of America, Trustee, to purchase four non-invasive ventilators for premature babies. The non-invasive ventilators are state-of-the-art treatment for babies needing assistance with breathing. In 2013, Stormont-Vail was one of eight neonatal intensive care units in the U.S. to receive the Gold Seal of Approval for Prematurity from the Joint Commission.
“The Humphreys’ family were always such great supporters of our Neonatal IntensiveCare Unit,” said Nicki Bradbury, Director, Stormont-Vail Neonatal IntensiveCare. “It is fitting that their gift assured the purchase of these non-invasive ventilators allowing us to provide the latest technology for our tiniest patients who have respiratory issues.”
