VCHS receives funding to purchase new EKG machine for Emergency Department

ORD, Neb. – Valley County Health System (VCHS) was the recipient of a $3,739 grant from the John & Alyce Wozab Memorial Fund in April of this year to help purchase an EKG machine for the Emergency Department. The VCHS Foundation was the recipient of a $1,000 grant from the Aksarben Foundation, which was then donated to the hospital to also fund the purchase of this piece of equipment. 

This new EKG machine will provide early detection of abnormal heart rhythms.  A quality EKG tracing is the standard of care for anyone presenting to the emergency department with a complaint of chest pain, upper back pain or indigestion pain.

The combined contributions of $4,739 enabled VCHS to purchase this new EKG machine which will impact members of Ord and surrounding communities. The ability to perform a high quality EKG benefits our patients by allowing for early detection of heart attacks and immediate intervention to save lives.
