Gundersen Boscobel's new clinic microscope

The Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics Foundation was established in 1990 for the purpose of supporting the programs and services of Gundersen Boscobel.

One of the more recent purchases of the BAHC Foundation was that of a new microscope placed at the Gundersen Boscobel Clinic. "The purchase of the clinic microscope was initiated by Laboratory Director Judy Dayton," Foundation Director Eric Swan explains. "Requests are always need-based and come directly from the departments in need."

"A microscope is used numerous times every day by laboratory personnel for the evaluation of blood, urine, skin and body fluids and is a real asset for the work that we do," explains Dayton. "The purchase of this new microscope has allowed us to improve our accuracy, proficiency and test turnaround times for microscopic specimen tests. All of this helps us improve patient excellence, something we are always striving for."

Having microscopes in the clinics allows for some tests to be run immediately and onsite, rather than be sent to the Lab," explains Terri Bohn, who works in the lab in the Gundersen Boscobel Clinic. "The new microscope has truly helped us improve patient care." "Judy helped find the most cost-effective, yet useful microscope. It has quickly become a real asset at our Boscobel clinic," concluded Deb Randall, Director of Clinics.

With the annual appeal starting in November, it is important to remember BAHC Foundation's mission: To secure and manage gift support to assist GBAHC in meeting the needs of the community by funding facilities and equipment, staff development and an endowment.

Many equipment purchases are funded through Gundersen Boscobel's budget, but a strong, healthy, viable institution also can reply upon on its Foundation to supplement those purchases. "We are thankful to be able to provide new equipment to departments in need," Swan concludes. "The BAHC Foundation plays a key role in ensuring the best care possible is provided here in Boscobel and in the surrounding communities."
