SPRINGVILLE—The Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation Board re-elected its officers at its May 1 quarterly meeting.
President William King of West Valley; Vice President Mary Kwiatek of Springville; Secretary David Batterson of Springville and Treasurer Claudia Miller of Arcade were re-elected. The group re-appointed four members to three-year terms: Batterson, Kwiatek, Grover Riefler and Stanley Handzlik. Brandon Frank and Kathleen Paszkiewicz were re-appointed as employee representatives from BCH and the Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home, respectively.
Funding will go toward equipment purchases for the Surgical Center and acute care on the second floor. In addition to an anesthesia machine for surgical cases, the foundation will fund a new inpatient bed, upgraded vital signs equipment and technology equipment for nursing staff. The new inpatient bed is made possible from a gift to the BCH Foundation from the Springville-Griffith Community Education Foundation. Those decisions were made after the board reviewed activity from donors and supporters for the first four months of 2017.
At its Garden Party, on May 25, the board will celebrate the career of Darlene Schrantz, RN and honor the memory of Dr. William McMahon. Funds raised on May 25 will benefit the BCH Heart Center. More information is available by calling Kara Kane at 592-2871 ext. 1485.
