WINNSBORO — Fairfield Memorial Hospital Foundation has received a $4000 grant from Aflac to fund the purchase of NuStep equipment for Fairfield Memorial Hospital.
“The equipment provides patients with cardiovascular training, while working to strengthen both arms and legs. It increases their circulation and endurance, as a part of either a physical or occupational therapy program. Patients recovering from a wide variety of issues such as: strokes, knee replacements, back sprains and strains, as well as shoulder injuries will benefit from using the NuStep as a part of their therapeutic plan,” said Sarah Stredney, PT, director of rehabilitation at FMH.
“To date the foundation has been able to provide nearly $230,000 to the hospital through grants, contributions and in-kind donations,” said Mike Quinn, President of FMH Foundation. “Grants, such as the most recent one from AFLAC, assist our foundation to provide funds to the hospital to purchase needed equipment for patients. Having access to needed equipment at the hospital allows patients to get quality medical care in their community, close to home.”
