Acknowledgement of a grant to purchase kits will be held September 7, 2016
<BOZEMAN>–The parents of at-risk infants born at Bozeman Health
Family Birth Center have another tool for keeping their babies safe, thanks
to REACH Air Medical Services, the American Heart Association and the
Bozeman Health Foundation.
These families will now receive an American Heart Association
Infant CPR Anytime Kit at no cost as the family is discharged from the hospital, thanks to a
grant from REACH, which made 400 kits available for the next two years.
REACH Air Medical Services and the American Heart Association will be
acknowledged at an event celebrating the donation of these resuscitation
kits on Wednesday, September 7, at 10:00 am at the Bozeman Health helicopter pad.
The AHA Infant
CPR Anytime Kits can help prepare families to confidently initiate care of their infant
in cases of a respiratory or cardiac emergency at home. Infant CPR can
be crucial in saving vulnerable and precious lives, and the kits make
learning the core skills of CPR easy and fun for the whole family.
“Partnering with organizations such as the American Heart Association
and REACH Air Medical Services helps us help patients in new and creative
ways,” said Jason Smith, Executive Vice President of Philanthropy
at Bozeman Health Foundation. “We’re really pleased that our
brand new parents now get to take the
Infant CPR Anytime Kits home with them.”
REACH will have their helicopter at the event, unless it is called into
service. The celebration will be relocated to the Bozeman Health Atrium
in case of inclement weather. For more information, call 406-414-1085.
