Westfields Hospital & Clinic Foundation hosts wine event fundraiser

Posted on:

Westfields Hospital & Clinic Foundation will host its annual Wineology event Thursday, Feb. 6 at White Eagle Golf Club in Hudson. The event will raise funds for lifesaving equipment and caregiver education on the Westfields Hospital campus.

Westfields hopes to raise $48,000 at the event for staff education and training, including simulation training, which gives staff the opportunity to practice giving care in an emergency situation in real time on a “dummy” that has capabilities of reacting like a human would.

“This training is proven to better prepare caregivers for a real life emergency situation,” said Jo Wrich, foundation director. “Because we are a rural hospital, we need to be more prepared for emergency situations because we have fewer specialty services on hand/close to our campus.”

The annual event features a five-course dinner, paired with wines from Sonoma County. Tickets for the event are $125 and available on the hospital foundation website, http://westfieldsfoundation.com, or by calling the foundation: (715) 243-2793.
