The Southeastern Med Auxiliary recently donated $24,000 to complete its pledge of $84,000 toward the purchase of a GeneXpert ® currently being used in the hospital’s Laboratory Department. This progressive system reduces turn-around-times for vital lab tests from days to hours, enabling doctors to make quicker, more informed treatment decisions. The Southeastern Med Auxiliary is dedicated to enhancing patient care through community fundraisers. This donation of $24,000 was raised through the Southeastern Med Auxiliary’s 21st Annual Wonderland of Trees event in November. Pictured with the GeneXpert ® (L to R) are Debra Banna, director of Laboratory Services at Southeastern Med; Marti Reed, Wonderland of Trees Chairperson; Bonnie Perkins, Wonderland of Trees Chairperson; and Suellen Johnson, president of the Auxiliary.

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Dec. 23, 2012 – For the eighth consecutive year, Calvin Ringer, a 13-year-old from Kimbolton, has donated his hard earned money to Southeastern Med’s Pediatric Unit.
