The SEMC Foundation actively seeks grant opportunities to help fund capital projects and new programs underway at the Medical Center.
Current projects supported through grant funding include:
Horizon Admin RxTM – Point-of-Care Barcode Medication Administration System: An IT system that employs real-time medication information and includes the use of handheld scanning devices to verify the right patient, right drug, right dose, right route and right time – called the “five rights”. A grant of $297,145 from Health Research Inc. (HRI) provided funds for the implementation and training phase of this project. State funding for the project is from the New York State Attorney General’s settlement with Cardinal Health, Inc.
Co-Generation System: The Medical Center was awarded a $2 million grant by the New York Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to design and install a co-generation system. In addition, the system will showcase an emerging practice that will allow the hospital to obtain revenues by selling power back to the power grid. The project will take approximately 9 months to complete at a cost of $7.2 million. Once complete, the project is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 900 tons per year and save $800,000 in energy costs.
Grants received from governmental sources (federal and state) and from private foundations provide vital funds that allow the Medical Center to continue serving those in need.
