The epicentre of care, and a vital part of treatment for every patient at Trenton Memorial Hospital is a bed. It’s also the place where many patients spend time with their loved ones. From Emergency Care to Inpatient Unit, Palliative Care and beyond, every area of the hospital has unique bed requirements in order to provide the most appropriate level.
In 2017 the Trenton Memorial Hospital had:
• 33,388 Emergency visits
• 35,086 Clinic visits
• Over 9,000 surgeries
• 735 admitted patients
With only 26 beds, it is absolutely vital that new beds be purchased and current ones be replaced with “smart bed” technology including alarms, nurse call systems, weigh scales, better patient positioning controls, and bed brakes, to enhance patient care, safety and comfort.
Last year’s campaign was a complete success. Together, we raised $32,000, enough to replace four hospital beds at Trenton Memorial Hospital!
Our 2018 Buy-A-Bed goal is to raise another $32,000 and purchase 4 new hospital beds.
Leon’s Trenton has committed to donating $25 from the purchase of every mattress valued at $299 or higher to the Buy-A-Bed Campaign, benefiting the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation.
