Each of us has an important role to play in keeping our patients safe from infection—and hand hygiene is key!

Our team from the Quality and Infection Prevention Department ran fun, informative learning exercises on infection prevention and also hosted, with help from our volunteers, a Brownie Challenge and raffle to raise funds for our 3D Mammography Campaign Fund.

Early detection saves lives, and YOU all help make that difference.”

Many entered the raffle to win the quilted bag handmade by volunteer Ethel Cahoon and over 20 staff members entered the Brownie Challenge with flavors from traditional chocolate to pumpkin pie. The event raised $371.
