KIWANIS AT WORK!
On February 20, 2020, the Jacksonville Kiwanis Club presented a check to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals to fund the purchase of a Neonatal Ventilator for the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital -Jacksonville Emergency Department.
Previously unequipped to property handle the delivery of a baby, CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital- Jacksonville has been making strides to best serve the community in times of emergency. With help from funding through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, the Emergency Department is now better prepared to care for newborn babies, should the need arise.
“It doesn’t happen too often, but it does happen,” said Dwain Coates, clinical director of the Emergency Department, speaking of deliveries in the CHRISTUS ER, Jacksonville. “We delivered twins earlier this year. Sometimes people don’t know where else to go so they come here. We need to be best prepared to take care of the babies and the families who count on us.”
