Each year, nearly 1,000 babies are born at Fairfield Medical Center and our Maternity department is at the heart of patient care in our community.
In recognition of the vital role our Maternity department plays in saving and changing lives, the FMC Foundation donated the proceeds from their 2018 special events to support Maternity equipment purchases at Fairfield Medical Center.
With the help of our generous community, the Foundation was able to contribute $112,964 to support state-of-the-art equipment purchases to help FMC continue providing the best experience possible for mothers and babies at our facility.
These items included 21 bassinets, a new isolette, a new wireless monitoring system, seven obstetrics labor tables and other necessary items to support our growing Maternity department.
