Altru Health Foundation
Giving Hearts Day Brings in Over $36,500
Altru Health Foundation participated in Giving Hearts Day on February 13. The 24-hour online fund raising event, hosted by Dakota Medical Foundation, brought in over $36,500. These proceeds, combined with other donor gifts to the NICU, will be used to help purchase a $45,000 Giraffe OmniBed for premature babies at Altru.
A Giraffe OmniBed is different from a traditional isolette in several ways. It allows the mattress to rotate 360 degrees, which gives the provider access to the baby from any angle, without disruption. It can also be completely closed to provide temperature control, opens quickly with the touch of a button, and has a built-in scale, allowing the provider to check the baby’s weight without interrupting his or her sleep cycle.
