Exceeding the fundraising expectations of non-profit hospitals may be a daunting task for most institutions, but that was not the case at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center’s 2011 Gala. Jeron Electronic Systems Inc., along with an elite list of public and private donors, was pleased to participate in a record-breaking event that raised an incredible $1.2 million.. The milestone event, honoring Board of Trustees Chairman Jay C. Nadel, also heralded the successful culmination of a $30 million campaign to fund The Kaplen Pavilion, home of the hospital’s state-of-the-art emergency care center.
“Our relationship with Englewood Hospital goes back to 2003, when EHMC was upgrading its nurse call system”, noted Ericka Baran, Vice President-Marketing for Jeron. “Then, as now, EHMC was at the cutting edge of medical care and treatment. We were pleased that Provider 680 met their rigorous standards and continues to be an essential and failsafe component in the hospital’s patient care arsenal. It only made sense to support EHMC in their continuing goals and missions.
According to Jeron Distributor and Maintaining Direct Communications Company (MDCC) owner Mark Carter, installation of Provider® 680 touchscreen-over-IP systems for the ED and the Kaplen Pavilion was completed in 2009. With the exception of two systems, all incorporated CAT5 cabling. “We were able to integrate many of the functions of Provider 680, including a full array of management reports and synchronization of patient data through HL7/ADT.”
As the regional leader in healthcare with more than 500 beds and 2,100 employees , EHMC’s needs continue to evolve. Jeron Distributor MDCC plans to remain one step ahead, ready to provide the facility with communications solutions befitting the institution’s 5-star HealthGrades® rating.
