Hospital Foundation Events
A Grand Venetian Affair
An evening of mystique, masks and costumes ~ May 18, 2013
Proceeds will be dedicated to upgrade electronic cardiac and respiratory monitoring equipment used the emergency department and throughout the hospital. Advances in monitoring equipment technology enable early detection of life threatening cardiac and respiratory deterioration decreasing the need for slower, more painful and more expensive invasive tests. This will support our commitment to continuously look for ways to improve patient care and provide a better overall experience for patients at CVMC Hospital. Contact the foundation office for information on sponorship opportunities - 775.782.1554. See A Grand Affair for the details and information on the Grand Vacation to Italy Raffle.
