Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken Donation Helps Purchase Equipment for Skills Lab
The Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken recently visited Aiken Technical College and saw first-hand how their support has made a difference for ATC students.
The organization’s most recent donation of $5,980 to the ATC Foundation was used to purchase four CareScape V100 Patient Monitors, which are used by nursing students in their skills lab. During their visit, Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken members saw demonstrations of how the equipment is used in the skills lab.
The skills lab allows students to become proficient with industry-grade equipment while practicing skills and patient interaction prior to entering the field.
Since 2006, the Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken has donated more than $63,700 to the ATC Foundation for scholarships and to purchase equipment for health science programs.
“We are overwhelmed by their generosity and compassion for our students at Aiken Technical College,” said Mary Commons, director of the ATC Foundation.
