SOUTHPORT — Dosher Memorial Hospital Foundation is donating $6,000 to Southport’s Dosher Memorial Hospital for needed medical equipment.

The funds will help the hospital attain a new electronic signature pad for the Emergency Room Cart and a new hand-held ultrasound unit for the patient care unit. The ultrasound equipment will replace an outdated unit to check pulses for post-operative orthopedic patients.

“We are grateful that our donors were able to fund two pieces of equipment essential to providing extraordinary care for our patients,” Dosher president and CEO Lynda Stanley said in a statement. “We are thankful for the support of our caring community.”

The Dosher Foundation was established in 2010 to help ensure the Dosher Hospital can provide patients with quality service, care, and medical equipment.
