THANK YOU!

COVID-19 has pulled us together like no other time in our history.

Because of your generosity our TOGETHER WE CARE campaign raised the much needed funds to help us keep COVID-19 at bay.

However, there was no way to predict the overall financial impact, which has been tremendous.

Prepared for what’s ahead.

While COVID cases have decreased, we’re not out of the woods. Healthcare experts fear a potential 4th wave, as case numbers begin to climb.

We need to be ready; and we need your help!

 

That’s why we joined forces with

We have made the sad decision to cancel our annual spring Gala, but your donations are as important as ever.

FUTURE READY

2021 BROUGHT HOPE

As vaccines became available, WhidbeyHealth lead the way in distributing them to our frontline workers, our elderly and the most vulnerable among us while local pharmacies prepared to join the effort.

THE IMPACT WAS HUGE

There was no surplus money to run vaccine clinics. There was no budget for deep-freeze storage systems. There was no excess money for additional staffing or facility renovations.

The combination of unanticipated expenses and reduced insurance revenue currently represent $15 million in losses.

Still, WhidbeyHealth was the leading provider of vaccines with more than 14,000 vaccinations  administered to date– all of them at no charge to any patient. Like all of the services at WhidbeyHealth, everyone who needs medical care gets it regardless of their ability to pay.

IMPACT - PROTECTION

THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFT

Your generosity has made it possible for us to mobilize funds to meet critical needs like:

PROTECTION

  • Portable respirators that protect our EMS responders, doctors and nurses from exposure to the COVID-19 virus
  • Halo Systems – machines that use dry misting hydrogen peroxide to disinfect contained spaces like an ambulance, a patient room, or an operating room. The mist gets into all of the areas that a wipe-down cannot reach
Sterilize and Sanitize

STERILZE AND SANITIZE

  • Negative Airflow Systems; two installed in specialized patient rooms, and two portable units for flexible use throughout the hospital and clinics.
  • A new, Gold-Standard Sterilization System for all endoscopy equipment, to ensure the highest possible degree of safety for our patients undergoing invasive procedures

TESTING AND ISOLATION

TESTING AND ISOLATION

  • Rapid testing equipment for our lab to get results of testing for coronavirus and 21 other respiratory viruses accurately when minutes matter
  • A 14-bed patient tent with isolation capacity. The tent with HVAC becomes an inde-pendent wing in which patients with infectious illnesses can be cared for while being isolated from the main hospital structure. Beyond COVID-19, this tent upgrades the Medical Center’s disaster.

 

THANK YOU!

So THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
to all who have stepped up in so many ways with a single goal: enabling WhidbeyHealth to continue to deliver exceptional healthcare here on Whidbey!
