The local Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aerie 2693, recently presented a gift of $6,288.24 to the Capital Region Jack Sanders, MD, Cardiac Center, according to a news release from Capital Region Medical Center.
These funds were raised from the chicken dinner that the Eagles held in February.
At the direction of Chris Medlin, manager of the Cardiac Center, the funds will be used to purchase an ultrasound to guide femoral and radial artery access and to facilitate vascular access, according to CRMC. Using ultrasound reduces the average time to gain access to the vascular area in need of treatment, improves quality and reduces the risks of complications.
Through the years, Capital Region Medical Center has been the recipient of more than $120,000 from the Eagles Club to fund various causes, according to the news release.
