Time Matters: Laboratory Equipment Campaign

When a patient experiencing a critical medical condition needs stabilization in the Emergency Department - time matters. Monitoring possible reactions to a new medication – time matters. Ensuring the safety of patients prior to discharge – time matters. In all areas of Georgetown Hospital, time matters, and the results of laboratory tests are often a determinant in the next steps of a patient’s healthcare journey.
The Georgetown Hospital Foundation’s Time Matters campaign goal is $500,000 for new and upgraded laboratory equipment, to ensure our healthcare teams have the fastest, most advanced and accurate lab test results to diagnose and treat patients.
In less than three years, the volume of tests being conducted in our lab has increased by nearly 30%. As our community continues to grow, so do we. The Time Matters campaign will raise half a million dollars for four new essential pieces of laboratory equipment to increase capacity and reduce the turnaround time for test results.
• Adding a second Coagulation Analyzer, more tests will be done in a shorter amount of time
• Adding new technology with a Hematology analyzer means tests that previously could only be done in other labs will now be done in house
• A Cellavision will increase the type of tests being done at the hospital
• The Water Filtration System will ensure that a safe, sterile water source is available for sensitive tests
All of this state-of-the-art equipment ensures that patient treatment plans can be developed faster and more accurately.
Because when it comes to your health, time matters.

Priority Equipment Appeal

Each year, Georgetown Hospital staff and physicians sit down with hospital leadership and craft a prioritized list of equipment needed for our hospital. Some of these items are replacements for existing pieces that have reached the end of their lifespan, and others are brand-new to Georgetown Hospital, updating our technology and expanding our service offerings. It is the Foundation’s role to raise the funds needed to purchase the items deemed most critical to the hospital.
