Northern Montana Hospital Surgical Day Care Receives Donation from Northern Montana Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary

Havre, Montana – Northern Montana Hospital’s (NMH) Surgical Day Care was recently gifted an Obstetrics Procedure Chair purchased by the Northern Montana Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary. The Spa Source Klyne + OB/GYN model exam and power procedure chair will be used for gynecological procedures. It is an all electric chair/bed that features 4 motors to control the height, backrest, leg-rest and tilt functions. The chair also has a convenient single button re-set switch on the back to return the chair to the seated, upright position.

“Having this chair available for gynecological procedures will add comfort and flexibility for our patients” stated Danielle Courtnage, RN, OR Director. “The extra features enable us to place the patient in the correct position while ensuring stability for more exact motions. Our patient’s comfort and safety are very important to us, and this chair will definitely help with that.” added Ms. Courtnage.

The Northern Montana Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary purchased this chair off the “Wish List” that had been submitted to them this past year. “We like to say that the Volunteers here at NMH provide the “Extras” in healthcare” said Judy Solomon, NMH Volunteer Auxiliary President. “We run the gift shops and our proceeds go back into the organization to help with projects and supplies. These items are selected from requests made, and we’re so proud of each and every item we’re able to contribute to the organization.”

The Northern Montana Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary has been a long-standing part of Northern Montana Health Care and is always accepting new members. Please contact Lizzy Lindbom, Volunteer Services Supervisor for more information on how to become a volunteer at NMH. 406-262-1330.
