Each and every donation helps improve the quality of life for your family, neighbors and friends.

The mission of the ECHN Community Healthcare Foundation is to promote and engage philanthropic support for ECHN and its affiliates so they may continue their mission and pursue their vision.

Your donations allow us to go beyond the provisions of our annual budget and purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment, renovate patient care areas, and expand programs and services. Financial contributions ensure the availability of excellent health care for you, your family, and your neighbors and friends when it is needed most. We hope you will find many reasons to direct your support to the programs and facilities of ECHN.

BACH da Vinci Experience

Business Alliance for Community Health (BACH) members and guests took advantage of the opportunity to learn about and handle the controls of the da Vinci Si surgical robot on Tuesday, June 11. Linda Lemire, Cheryl Petrarca and Andrea Kotsch gave an introduction to robotic surgery and the program here at ECHN, as well as explained the procedures used and the roles of others on the surgical team. Everyone in attendance took a turn at the controls and was very impressed with the ease of manipulation and the 3D viewing of the “site”.
