At the check presentation made by the Masonic Grand Lodge of PA to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children on Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011 were (l to r): Gary Emmet, MD, Jefferson Director of Hospital Pediatrics; Glenn Stryjewski, MD, Director of Critical Care Medicine, Nemours; Grandmaster Thomas Sturgeon and Col. Harris Brooks of the Masons.
The Masonic Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania has made a gift of $40,000 to Nemours/Alfred I.duPont Hospital for Children to purchase telemedicine equipment for use with pediatric patients at the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
Telemedicine enables doctors to evaluate children from a distance by using cameras and computers. For example, examinations and radiology studies conducted at the base in Dover can be instantly transmitted for consultation with pediatric specialists at the duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, saving the family a trip and additional expenses, and allowing for timely diagnosis
The generous donation from the Masonic Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania is through the original “Change for Troops” and now the “Help for Heroes” fund, which is supported by individual masons in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Col. Harris Brooks, representing the Masons, said, “Our military families deserve the best care. We are delighted to make this donation to help support them and the physicians at the base. It’s a win-win-win for the kids, the base, and the hospital.”
