The OSF HealthCare Saint Clare Medical Center Tree of Lights campaign raised enough funds to upgrade surgical equipment. This year, the Tree of Lights campaign purchased a SCOPE BUDDYTM and upgraded tubing to better meet the needs of our community. In total, the equipment cost $5,128.
A SCOPE BUDDY is an endoscope flushing aid, an integral piece of equipment for the special procedures team. Safety and infection prevention is a top priority at OSF Saint Clare, and the SCOPE BUDDY creates a consistent, reliable and safe means to flush endoscope channels. It provides enhanced data monitoring, increased cleaning consistency and decreased risk of cross-contamination.
The Surgery Department special procedures team will use this equipment to provide an additional safeguard for patients. Since the inception of the Tree of Lights in 1990, more than $120,000 has been raised for different departments of the hospital. Together, we make a difference. We appreciate our donors and community for supporting the latest campaign.
