SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Hospital Volunteer Guild presented the Saratoga Hospital Foundation with four checks totaling $210,000 at the Guild’s annual dinner on Thursday, Nov. 14. Three of the gifts were installments toward the Guild’s $900,000 pledge to support costs associated with vital healthcare services and supplies, which are already providing patient benefits at Saratoga Hospital and Saratoga Community Health Center. The fourth gift was donated to help cancer patients in need of
financial assistance.

“We are immensely grateful for the Volunteer Guild’s generosity,” said Meredith Woolford, executive director of Saratoga Hospital Foundation. 

Since its founding in 1948, the Guild has donated over $5 million to hospital projects and programs. The Guild’s more than 250 active volunteers routinely contribute over 60,000 hours of services each year at Saratoga Hospital’s main campus and off-sites, including Treasures Consignment Boutique and Thrift Shop, as well as the Saratoga Hospital Gift Shoppe. 

Part of the donation helped bring “smart” intravenous (IV) pumps to all Saratoga Hospital facilities last year. IV pumps have long been used to deliver lifesaving fluids, such as insulin, and chemotherapy. New “smart” IV pumps are designed to ensure that patients receive the right medication at the right dose at the right time. The result is enhanced safety and better outcomes.
