The Innovation Fund at Manistee Hospital allows us to improve and excel by enhancing the quality of health and wellness in our community. The Innovation Fund will be used in 2018 to fund new equipment, such as:

  • Replacing and updating maternity beds to guarantee mothers have the best possible birthing experience. Estimated cost is $17,300.
  • Purchase of an OB/GYN ultrasound unit to scan pre-born infants for monitoring overall health and highlighting potential problems during a pregnancy. Having an ultrasound unit reserved specifically for OB/GYN will eliminate the need for mothers to travel to other parts of the hospital. Cost is $20,000.
  • Purchase a pediatric gastroscope to allow a closer look at the inside of the esophagus and stomach. Having equipment catered to children’s needs will lead to a safer and quicker diagnosis. Cost is $35,000.
  • Purchase of specialized operating room beds to keep the patient in the best position possible for surgical procedures. Cost is $160,000.
