COOPERSTOWN – Bassett Medical Center will be upgrading its patient care equipment with the help of a grant from the Scriven Foundation.
The Scriven Foundation has given Bassett an $8 million grant to help with the purchase of additional state-of-the-art care equipment such as surgical instruments, patient monitoring equipment, laboratory equipment, patient exam tables and more.
"This important investment in patient care equipment will help many individuals in many different care settings," said Dr. William LeCates, acting president of Bassett Medical Center. "We always seek to provide the highest possible degree of comfort and safety for all of our patients, and this gift will ensure that we meet our goal in every instance. I am very appreciative of the Scriven Foundation's generosity in supporting Bassett's core mission."
The Scriven Foundation is based in New York City and has provided financial support to charitable organizations within Otsego County for many years, according to Bassett.
