RTN Federal Credit Union Donates $50,000 to Lawrence General
RTN Federal Credit Union has donated $50,000 to Lawrence General Hospital (LGH) to assist in establishing a high-fidelity Team Training and Simulation Lab. The $150,000 lab will feature four Laerdal training simulators in a fully equipped two-bed hospital room, along with an observation room, and small debriefing area.
The planned simulators include both adult and pediatric simulators with pre-programmed scenarios, a birthing simulator, and a nursing simulator. Nearly every clinical scenario across LGH and our region will be able to be replicated in the new facility. The new lab is scheduled to open later this year.
“RTN is pleased to support Lawrence General Hospital and its mission to provide local, high-quality medical care,” says Richard E. Wright, Treasurer and CEO of RTN Federal Credit Union. “We are proud to continue our collaborative partnership, and our mutual goals of serving the needs of the community.”
“This new Simulation Lab will offer our local providers advanced clinical training that has never been available locally,” says Dianne J. Anderson, President and CEO of Lawrence General Hospital. “I cannot thank RTN Federal Credit Union enough for their generous support to help make this dream come true for us.”
As the Merrimack Valley’s leading regional health care system, Lawrence General Hospital’s mission is to deliver comprehensive health care to patients with access to the high-quality care, the latest technologies and personalized treatment.
