UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital receives donation of new hoyer lift


Norwich Rehabilitation and Nursing Center recently donated a hoyer lift to UHS  Chenango Memorial Hospital to use at UHS Imaging, Norwich.  The lift is used to help lift and position patients onto diagnostic imaging equipment when needed. 

Norwich Rehabilitation and Nursing Center administrator Kate Conant stated, “We are happy to provide this equipment as a local healthcare partner.  Collaborating with UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital strengthens the care opportunities available not only to our residents, but to the community as a whole.” 

Dr. Michael Trevisani, Vice President Medical Affairs/Chief Medical Officer at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital, thanked Ms. Conant and the rehabilitation and nursing center for their donation.  Before this donation, the imaging center had been sharing a hoyer lift with other departments in the hospital.  “Having this hoyer lift right on-site all the time is a lot more convenient for both patients and staff.  The lift ensures a more comfortable, safe patient experience for patients from Norwich Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and all members of the community who require it.  We are very grateful for this donation.”
