The Chester River Health Foundation and the Chester River Hospital Auxiliary recently funded the purchase of 11 new reclining chairs for inpatient rooms for the comfort of patients. The Chester River Auxiliary funded the purchase of four new wheelchairs (two large and two regular). The Auxiliary/Volunteers are also funding the purchase of three vital signs monitors at the hospital to improve patient care.
