Story

The 2015 employee giving campaign raised money to purchase King Vision Scopes for the health network's entire fleet of MICU vehicles.

Through the generosity of Inspira employees, Inspira Foundation Gloucester County raised nearly $30,000 in its first employee campaign in close to ten years.  

 

In February, Inspira Foundation Gloucester County launched its 2015 Employee Giving Campaign which was aimed at raising enough money to purchase King Vision Scopes and reusable blades for the health network's entire fleet of Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) vehicles.  

 

The King Vision Scopes are a new type of laryngoscope that features a camera to aid in the intubation process, making it more comfortable for patients, causing less damage to the airway, and saving more lives.  In 2014, Inspira's MICU responded to 26,000 phone calls, helped 13,000 individuals, and intubated 769 people.

 

For the first time ever, this campaign gave the employees the option to donate PTO hours, which proved to be a popular option. The campaign surpassed its goal and raised nearly $30,000 in support of this vital project.  By May 2015, the MICU had all of the King Vision Scopes in hand and ready to be used.
