The funds will be used to underwrite the cost of a new BiliBed for Cox Monett Hospital. The BiliBed uses special blue spectrum lights to treat newborn babies with hyperbilirubinemia, or jaundice.
Cox Monett Hospital has only one BiliBed at this time, and the second one, which will be purchased with these funds, will allow more than one infant to be treated at the same time.
"We are thrilled that EFCO made this generous gift to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to benefit the Monett community," said Tim Siebert, executive director of Children's Miracle Network. "This new equipment will further enhance the quality of care provided to babies born at Cox Monett."
