KNOXVILLE, Iowa – The Knoxville Hospital & Clinics (KHC) Auxiliary recently donated $9,100 to KHC to purchase a bedside monitor for the Emergency Department.

The Nihon Kohden bedside monitor allows KHC staff to monitor patients while continually providing the highest standard of care. The monitor can be used at a moment’s notice ensuring that technology can be employed in the broadest range of levels and seamlessly transition between care areas as patient need dictates.

“It’s easy to notice how the auxiliary members give of themselves daily, both in time and support, to continually upgrade equipment and improve the services we offer,” said Kevin Kincaid, Chief Executive Officer at KHC. “We greatly appreciate their continued support.”

The KHC Auxiliary raises money through proceeds of sales in the KHC Flutterbye Gift Shop, book, jewelry, and scrub sales and Auxiliary member’s annual dues.

“Members of the auxiliary dedicate their personal time to serve the hospital in many ways, just one of those being raising funds to help support equipment purchases and program development at the hospital,” said Arleen Ensor, KHC Auxiliary President.
