CHWC-Montpelier Hospital Auxiliary recently approved funding donations for the local hospital’s inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient therapy department. Multiple therapy equipment items on the department’s “wish list” were purchased for approximately $1600 and included ankle cuff weights, dumbbell weights and rack, blood pressure cuffs, charts, mirrors, anatomical models, stools and tub bench. Representatives from the therapy department are pictured here with hospital auxiliary volunteers, from left to right, Jill Stuckey, occupational therapist; Amanda Thompson, speech pathologist; Joyce Schelling, Ruth Cooley, Vivian Brown, Armeda Sawmiller and President Deanna Gipe, all hospital auxiliary volunteers; and Josh Parrott, physical therapist. Funds for the donation from the auxiliary originated from hospital gift shop sales and various projects held during the year by the auxiliary.
