To enhance patient care and keep families connected, Dairyland Power Cooperative donated a total of $2,500 to Gundersen Health System in 2021 to support their partnership with AngelEye Camera System.
The AngelEye Camera System recently launched and is providing donors like Dairyland an opportunity to see its impact this week. Gundersen Medical Foundation is celebrating the launch of the camera system with a Zoom presentation on Thursday, July 14, at 6 p.m. The presentation will “show how the AngelEye Camera System is changing the way we care for our smallest patients.”
Dairyland contributed $1,250, which was matched by CoBank, a national cooperative bank, through CoBank’s Sharing Success Program. The AngelEye Camera system resulted in the installation of 18 adjustable cameras in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
“Dairyland is proud to support Gundersen Health System and their efforts to keep families together during an already challenging time,” said Brent Ridge, Dairyland President & CEO. “As a cooperative serving local communities and committed to supporting a work-life balance, we are pleased to collaborate with Gundersen to aid in the addition of this new technology.”
The unique camera system allows for 24/7 access to a live stream video of their child, decreasing parental anxiety and promoting family bonding. The system allows for families to be engaged as integral members of the care team and stay informed about daily care plans and milestones.
“This camera system brings comfort and connection for the moments families cannot physically be next to their newborn child,” said Jonathan McKenzie, Gundersen Philanthropy Officer.
