UMC Foundation Purchases Stretcher for ICU/Bariatrics

University Medical Center Foundation purchased a stretcher for the Intensive Care Unit at University Medical Center of El Paso. This stretcher was made possible through a grant from UMC Foundation Volunteer Corps. A portion of all funds raised by the Volunteer Corps are dedicated to the annual Volunteer Congress Fund. Volunteer Congress is a unique opportunity where Foundation volunteers review grant applications and hear presentations from hospital department leaders requesting a grant. 

Christopher Morales, Assistant Nurse Manager at the Intensive Care Unit presented his grant request during the UMC Foundation Volunteer Congress and received $8,853.23 to purchase this stretcher. Learn more by watching this video.
