The Hannibal Regional Hospital Foundation
recently announced the 2012 Annual Campaign of Heart to Heart. The Heart to Heart Campaign is raising funds to assist in the creation of a state of the art digital cardiac network. When every second counts, immediate access to medical specialists is critical. To insure life-saving care is only a heartbeat away, Hannibal Regional Hospital is creating an electronic ECG (Electrocardiogram) network that will facilitate 24-7 access to cardiologist for reading and diagnosis of critical cardiac events. The Cardiac Network will electronically transmit clinical quality ECG tracings for immediate reading, and create a central database for future comparative studies and remote access. This system will link the region by serving cardiac patients, so when every second counts, Hannibal Regional Hospital can be counted on to offer healing in a heartbeat.
Wendy Harrington, CEO and President of the Hannibal Regional Hospital Foundation, commented on the campaign, “Our Foundation is honored to be raising funds for such an important cause. We encourage our community to join us in this campaign. Donations directly benefit our cardiac patients and assist in healing hearts.”
The economics of healthcare present a constant challenge to hospitals all over the nation, including Hannibal Regional Hospital. Hannibal Regional Healthcare System has not wavered in its commitment to serve the acute care needs of our region.
