LANCASTER, Ohio (December 21, 2011) – Patients admitted to Fairfield Medical Center (FMC) for treatment are able to benefit from new flat screen televisions to enhance their patient experience at the Center thanks to TWIG 12.
“Even though its just TVs, this really has the potential to positively impact patient satisfaction, and that’s why we’re excited to be a part of it,” said Mary Lou McDaniel, TWIG 12 president.
Members of TWIG 12: Neva Nameth, Janet Boyer, Alyce Giles, Betty Lehman, Margaret Wolfinger, Rita Kilbarger and Mary Lou McDaniel.
TWIG 12 generously donated the televisions for each bed in all of the semi-private rooms on the third and fourth floors. Each patient has a TV along with headphones to watch what they individually prefer to increase patient satisfaction while reducing environmental noise.
“At Fairfield Medical Center patients are top priority and we strive to create ideal experiences for both patients and their families,” said Mina Ubbing, FMC president and CEO. “We are extremely grateful to TWIG 12 for their donation because the new TVs allow FMC to increase patient satisfaction by reducing noise and also gives patients a clearer screen to view their programming.”
Over the past year, TWIG 12 raised more than $65,000 for this project. Funds were raised through the FMC Gift Shop, which is open every day. Established in 1957, TWIG 12 has approximately 25 members and has given almost $1.5 million to FMC. For questions or more information about TWIG 12, call Mary Lou McDaniel at (740) 653-9473.
