New Hospital Equipment

Some new equipment at a local hospital boosts the survival rate of low birth weight infants.

Swedish American Hospital honored the donors of a $40,000 giraffe bed. It sounds like a lot of money but the bed operates as an incubator and radiant warmer, it has a built in scale, eliminates the stress of cold and noise and helps tiny infants survive.

Flat screen televisions were also donated to both the pediatric and family birthing departments.
