Dosher Receives ED Chest Compression Machine

By Staff Reports, posted Apr 1, 2022
Dosher Memorial Hospital recently got a LUCAS Chest Compression System for its emergency room, the result of a grant from the Orton Foundation.
The foundation, the North Carolina affiliate of The Moore Charitable Foundation, gave a $16,000 grant to the hospital’s foundation for the equipment.
“The most important intervention for patients experiencing cardiac arrest is high-quality chest compressions,” stated a news release. “The LUCAS device allows members of the Dosher Emergency Department to deliver best-in-class cardiac care, including consistent compressions with minimal interruptions.”
The Southport hospital treats more than 13,000 patients annually, the release stated.
“We are extremely grateful to The Orton Foundation for their commitment to local healthcare and for contributing to equipment upgrades that make a positive impact on the treatment of our patients,” Dosher Memorial President and CEO Lynda Stanley said in the release. “Their generous donations of over $200,000 in funds over the last several years have played a significant role in patient experience in the Dosher Emergency Department.”
