Ashtabula County Medical Center | ACMC Pulse | Summer 2022

Molded Fiber Glass provided funding for the purchase Richard Morrison, President and CEO of Molded Fiber Glass, and the MFG Foundation recently joined with Ashtabula County Medical Center to help improve patient care. The MFG Foundation funded the purchase of a GlideScope to help doctors visualize and manage airways during surgery and other procedures. The equipment is used by the Anesthesiology team for intubations and bronchoscopes, giving them advanced imaging technology to navigate and secure airways. In addition to adding safety for patients, the equipment offers enhanced safety and efficiency for caregivers. The use of the new GlideScope minimizes close contact during an intubation and increases efficiency. “Through the generous support of Mr. Morrison and the MFG Foundation, surgical patients will now benefit from the safety and advanced technology that the GlideScope provides, and for that we are grateful,” said ACMC President and CEO Michael Habowski. While the equipment is used primarily by the Surgery Department, it also supports patient care in the Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department.

Ashtabula County Medical Center is so very important to this community, and I’m so pleased to give back.” ACMC Foundation Executive Director Tami Netkowicz said this donation is particularly meaningful because of Dr. Huang’s legacy and because of the impact it will have on women’s healthcare. “We are humbled to receive the Huang family’s philanthropy, to continue Dr. Huang’s legacy of enhancing healthcare in Ashtabula County,” she said. “He dedicated his career to women’s health, and we are honored to commemorate his service and continue forging that mission.” Safe, quality care for women The donation supports an imaging suite at ACMC dedicated to women’s healthcare. The suite consolidates several of ACMC’s existing imaging services into an area devoted to the unique needs of women. The suite offers mammography, ultrasound and bone density scans, all within a defined space designed for comfort as well as for quality healthcare services. The project features new finishes, fixture upgrades and new state-of-the-art equipment. “It’s important for all patients to feel comfortable when seeking and receiving medical care,” said Habowski. “We are excited to be able to offer this space for women in the community, to continue to enhance access to safe, quality care.” ACMC Pulse • 11
