The UnityPoint Health Finley Health Foundation is the recipient of two grants from Variety – the Children’s Charity. The first grant, in the amount of $12,000, will be used to support the purchase of a Portable Bedside Ultrasound System for the Family Birthing Suites in UnityPoint Health – Finley Hospital. Portable ultrasound equipment provides more timely and accurate diagnoses at the patient’s bedside.
