Tree of Lights campaign purchases breath alcohol testing equipment

The OSF HealthCare Saint Clare Medical Center Tree of Lights campaign raised enough funds to upgrade equipment for growing occupational health services. This year, the Tree of Lights campaign purchased breath alcohol testing equipment to better meet the needs of our community. The cost of the equipment was $2,799.

The Emergency Department will use this equipment after hours for reasonable suspicion and local schools can utilize it for random student testing as scheduled during business hours. As we grow occupational health services to serve the Princeton community and its employers, this invaluable resource promotes a healthy and safe workplace. Since the inception of the Tree of Lights in 1990, more than $115,000 has been raised for different departments of the hospital. We appreciate our donors and community for supporting the latest campaign.
