What We Do

Each year, the DGH Foundation Board supports the purchase of priority medical equipment needed by the hospital.

In the past few years the Dartmouth General Hospital Charitable Foundation had funded a number of high priority items for the hospital.

Cardiac Monitoring System - $2,000,000

The cardiac monitoring system measures the physiological parameters of the patient such as the hearth rhythm, invasive and non-invasive blood pressure measurements, electrocardiogram, oxygen saturations, temperature, respiratory rate and end-tidal carbon dioxide levels. Additionally the monitors feature a continous 12 Lead ECG at the bedside (which increases timeliness to care for the cardiac patients). Funding for the system is being cost shared, the foundation's share is $525,000.
