Volunteer Auxiliary Funds Fetal Monitors

The Owensboro Health Volunteer Auxiliary recently funded the purchase of an additional wireless fetal telemetry monitor for the Labor & Delivery unit at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. Wireless monitors allow laboring women to move more freely during labor and have a better experience without sacrificing fetal monitoring needs. Without the cable clutter to manage, our team has the opportunity to concentrate on making patients’ time in the hospital as enjoyable as possible.

The Owensboro Volunteer Auxiliary was excited to fund this purchase that will positively impact our patients.
