(Torrington, CT) The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH) Auxiliary recently donated two blanket warmers valued at $10,800 for the continued care of the hospital’s patients. These warmers will be used in the Radiology Department and the Ambulatory Surgery and special procedures area on the hospital’s second floor.
“The Auxiliary can appreciate how much a warm blanket can improve each patient’s experience. With this donation, we hope to ensure that all patients are comfortable while they are at CHH so patients can rest and recover.” said Auxiliary President Barbara Pudlinski.
The two efficient Olympic Medical blanket warmers can warm blankets between 90° F and 150° F. The large interior with five shelves will allow for ample storage of blankets located conveniently steps away from each patient.
The CHH Auxiliary formed in 1916 has been a significant source of physical and financial aid to the Hospital. The CHH Auxiliary has over four hundred volunteer members who assist in raising money for CHH and the community through dues, donations, volunteering at the gift shop, and assisting with a variety of events including an annual fashion show and holiday promotions and sales.
