A History of Successful Fundraising

Like schools, law enforcement, city management, religious institutions, and local businesses, our hospital campus plays a vital role in meeting needs in our small town community. In return, we rely on our community for support, both through the use of hospital health services and through donations, so Swift County-Benson Health Services can continue to serve you. Without SCBHS, local residents would be forced to travel further to receive care. The absence of our hospital would greatly impact everyone here, especially in emergency situations when every minute counts. It could ultimately mean the difference between life or death for anyone – people we live and work with.

Every donation counts. Together we can make our goal and build a better healthcare system, one gift at a time. Your financial support helps Swift County-Benson Health Services to continue to grow community health & wellness through quality personalized health services.

Thanks to past donations from individuals and businesses, the SCBH Foundation has been able to support projects such as the addition of the state-of-the-art surgical suite, the purchasing of new medical equipment, the construction of Scofield Place, and now, the construction of Scandi Haven Village.

These projects have improved the quality and range of services the Swift County-Benson Health Services campus is able to provide today.

The goal of SCBHS is to be able to provide local access to a continuum of care, care that spans a lifetime, from prenatal/postnatal care to geriatrics and senior living and memory care.

The SCBH Foundation was established in 1995 to assist in raising support to meet that goal.

The focus for this fundraiser is to support the general building maintenance and equipment needs of the SCBHS hospital, updating rooms in the Scofield wing of Scandi Haven Village, and updating and installing green space around Scandi Haven Village and SCBHS.

HOSPITAL EQUIPMENT NEEDS AND BUILDING MAINTENANCE

  • Mechanical System Upgrades – Vital mechanical systems, such one of the hospital boilers, needs replacing.
  • Emergency Medical Record Software – A new electronic medical record software system would improve patient safety, improve collaboration between the clinic, hospital and other healthcare facilities, decrease risk of medical errors, and decrease the overall cost of healthcare.
  • Hospital Beds – New, more comfortable hospital beds are needed to replace the existing beds. New beds will have smart bed technology with valuable features to help staff keep patients comfortable and safe.
  • New Medical Devices Such as the 3D Mammography Machine – A 3D mammography machine offers a higher cancer detection rate that is 41% more accurate in detecting invasive cancers than 2D machines and reduces the number of additional imaging procedures.
  • New Ambulance – The hospital is also in need of a new ambulance. Help us continue saving lives by donating to support the purchase of a vehicle that serves as a vital lifeline in medical emergencies.

SCANDI HAVEN VILLAGE SCOFIELD UPDATES and BUILDING MAINTENANCE

  • Scofield Wing Updates – As each of the 31 apartments turn over, each room will be updated with a new coat of paint, new flooring, light fixtures and new cabinetry to be consistent with the new look of Scandi Haven Village.
  • Updates in Common Areas, Hallways, Stairways – new flooring and carpet in the common areas and walkways.
  • Exterior Updates – The 20 year old shingles and siding of the Scofield building will soon need replacing.
  • Common Area Furnishings – We would like to purchase new furniture in the shared spaces of this building.

GREENSPACE

This project includes installing greenspace and landscaping in the area around the new Scandi Haven Village building, in between the Scofield and Sonsteng wings, and updating the landscaping around the entrances of the hospital. This is your opportunity to sponsor the design, planning, labor, plants and trees, raised garden beds, and/or benches that would benefit the residents of the senior living and patients and visitors of the hospital.

SCANDI HAVEN VILLAGE SONSTENG WING COMMON ROOM, BISTRO, DINING ROOM NEEDS

The Sonsteng Wing of Scandi Haven Village will be in need of furnishings such as tables, end tables, couches, chairs in the common areas and the bistro.
