About the Foundation
Bayshore Community Hospital Foundation is a separate, non-profit charitable organization, which exists to benefit the programs and services of Bayshore Community Hospital and the patients and families we serve.
The Foundation raises funds for all departments and services at Bayshore Community Hospital. This year we will emphasize the following areas:
Cardiac ServicesA Cardiovascular Expansion Project at Bayshore Community Hospital is set to begin in 2013. This project includes the construction of a new state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Lab, as well as an Endovascular Suite that is OR capable and can accommodate cardiac catheterizations. Preparation, holding and recovery areas will be expanded to handle the increase in patient volume that will be seen at Bayshore.
Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric MedicineFor the second time in three years, Bayshore Community Hospital’s Center for Wound Healing has received the Center of Distinction Award, boasting a 96% healing rate and 97% patient satisfaction. In response to the growing need of wound healing services in our area, Bayshore will be relocating its current center (located in the hospital) to a separate building located just down the street. This new space will include four treatment rooms and will see the addition of two hyperbaric chambers, a service that will be unique to Bayshore in our area.
Center for Sleep MedicineEarly 2013 saw the relocation and opening of Bayshore’s New Center for Sleep Medicine. Located on Bayshore’s campus, this 3,000 square-foot renovated space houses six beds. Here, patients are monitored for sleep disorders, which are indentified as contributors to stroke, hypertension, heart attack and ADHD among children.
Women's CenterThe Bayshore Women’s Center provides expert and personalized care for breast health screenings, diagnosis and treatment. From digital mammography and breast MRI to bone density tests and stereotactic biopsies, the women’s center offers top-level breast care led by board certified radiologists and registered mammography technologists. The center offers private dressing rooms and waiting area and accommodates all schedules with flexible evening and weekend hours.
Emergency MedicineThe Emergency Department cares for patients with all degrees of illnesses and injuries 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With emergency certified physicians and emergency trained technicians, our staff is experienced in treating those in need of emergency care and dedicated to providing the most comprehensive care as efficiently as possible. Bayshore is a Designated Primary Stroke Center and recently opened a Pediatric Care Center, a separate area geared towards our littlest patients within the Emergency Department.
Nursing ScholarshipsBayshore Community Hospital is looking to assist its nursing team members with scholarship opportunities that will enable them to reach their potential, as well as contribute to the high level of patient care for which Bayshore strives. Bayshore believes that education is a lifelong process and that financial barriers may inhibit individuals from reaching their educational goals. Health care is forever changing and nurses need to keep abreast of standards of care to meet the best outcomes for our patients.
