Donations support enhancements at McGregor clinic

Gifts from McGregor area organizations and others are supporting greater safety and security at Riverwood’s McGregor clinic as well as an enhanced healing environment.

Minnewawa Sportsmen's ClubRecent gifts to Riverwood Foundation from the Minnewawa Sportsmen’s Club, Tamarack Sno-Flyers, Rio Tinto and the McGregor Lions Club were used to update the security system at the McGregor clinic this summer.

“The new security system has enhanced the clinic’s ability to manage access to medications and samples, ensuring their safety and availability for patient care use,” explains Jon Rauen, Riverwood clinic administrator. “This, in turn, ensures Riverwood’s McGregor clinic is complying with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and Joint Commission standards pertaining to medication security.”

In addition, photographer Kurt Johnson, whose photographic art is displayed in hospital hallways and patient rooms at Riverwood Healthcare Center, has donated four nature prints that now hang in the McGregor clinic.

“We continue to strive to create a healing environment in each of our facilities,” Rauen says. “Kurt Johnson’s art allows us to bring nature indoors and offers our patients and staff with a sense of inspiration and comfort.

Riverwood Foundation Director Katie Nelson adds: “We greatly appreciate these gifts and all donors who support our local health care system. Individuals and organizations can contribute gifts in many different ways that are outlined on our Foundation pages at www.riverwoodhealthcare.org and I’m happy to meet with anyone who has an interest in learning more about how we can put donor dollars to work.”
