A new MRI ventilator and five new BiPap machines have increased patient and staff satisfaction at Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield!

The Ascension Providence Foundation secured a grant from the Respiratory Foundation of Southeast Michigan that was used to purchase new equipment.

The new MRI ventilator helps patients breath during their MRI scan. The new BiPap machines provide positive air pressure when a patient breathes in and out, helping to open the lungs. The machine provides higher pressure when a patient breathes in which sets these BiPap machines apart from other types of ventilators.

Associate Testimonial: The new equipment provided ventilation to patients during the onset of COVID-19. The staff is extremely happy and proud to have the equipment needed to provide optimal patient care. We no longer have to call and rent equipment as often as we did before. This gives us more time to deliver care to our patients and not have to wait for delivery of equipment when we run short.

You made it possible for 350 children to have a special Christmas in 2021 by supporting the Christmas Store at Ascension St. John Hospital. Thank you!

So many parents have fallen on hard times due to the ongoing pandemic. They could not provide anything extra for their children, let alone presents to celebrate the holiday. Social workers at Ascension St. John Hospital identified families with children in need and referred them to the Christmas Store. Each child received an outfit, a toy, and an age-appropriate book. Their parents received a gift card for food and, if needed, diapers, hats and gloves.

Although the child you helped won’t know you personally, you made a very personal difference in their young life. Thank you for helping a child in need!
