In the third quarter of 2022, thanks to the community’s support, Morton Plant Mease Health Care Foundation granted your not-for-profit hospitals $6.3 million in support of seven programs and five capital projects. Please refer to the following descriptions highlighting key grants supported in the third quarter:

Interventional Radiology Lab Morton Plant Hospital
An additional Interventional Radiology suite will be added at Morton Plant Hospital to expand stroke-related services and streamline patient care. This expansion is essential to developing the infrastructure necessary for the hospital to treat complex neurovascular cases and maintain high-quality, patient-centered interventional radiology services and will include a second biplane angiography configuration for complex neuro-interventional procedures.

Mease Countryside Hospital Catheterization Lab 
Thanks to grant funding from our Men's Giving Circle, Mease Countryside Hospital will now be able to upgrade its third cardiac catheterization lab with the Philips Azurion image guided therapy platform. This equipment allows clinicians to perform complex interventional procedures such as angioplasty, a minimally invasive catheter-based procedure that opens narrowed or blocked arteries that supply blood to the heart, more precisely.

Mease Countryside Hospital Stealth Navigation O-Arm
The O-arm system is an intraoperative 2D/3D imaging system that is designed to meet the workflow demands of the surgical environment. It can be used in a variety of procedures including spine and orthopedics. Along with StealthStation navigation, the O-arm system provides enhanced 3D visibility and surgical feedback for the surgeon during the procedure. This technology allows for more precise hardware placement, decreasing the likelihood of revision surgeries.

Medical Fitness Program
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 6 of every 10 adults in the US suffer from a chronic disease such as heart disease, cancer, lung disease, stroke, or diabetes – with low levels of physical activity being a key contributor. The medical fitness programs being offered at the BayCare Fitness Centers focus on patients with diabetes, bone loss prevention, balance programs, and Fit-4-Surgery – a Pre- and Post- surgery exercise program.

Physiological Monitors for NICU
The physiologic monitors in Mease Countryside Hospital’s Level III NICU provide essential information to the care team on the status of our infants receiving critical care. Using this information, the clinical staff can better evaluate a patient’s condition and make appropriate treatment decisions. Thanks to funding from our Skip Cline Society, these new monitors and system are quieter and feature improved alarm management.

Integrative Medicine Program for Cancer Patients
Integrative medicine addresses all aspects of a patient's health and lifestyle, including physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual well-being. This program will allow the Integrative Medicine Clinic to assist patients diagnosed with cancer, with financial limitations, through symptom management techniques, including acupuncture, auriculotherapy, breathwork, meditation, stress management, and lifestyle modifications.
