AOH Foundation purchases recliner chair, blanket warmer for patients

Aspirus Ontonagon Hospital (AOH) Foundation donors provided funding for the purchase of a new recliner chair and blanket warmer for the hospital’s medical-surgical unit.

The funds for the recliner were raised during the Foundation’s 10th annual golf outing in July 2018. The blanket warmer was purchased with funds raised at the Foundation’s Christmas Concert in December.

“We are sincerely grateful for the support of our generous community and the efforts of our Foundation,” said Dylan Taylor, interim chief administrator for Aspirus Ontonagon Hospital and Clinics. “This is another great example of how we work together to enhance the patient experience for the best outcomes.”
