Saint Joseph London Receives Grant to Improve Heart Care for the Youngest Patients

Pediatric and infant heart and vascular patients at Saint Joseph London, London, KY, now have better monitoring technology closer to home. With the help of a $10,000 grant from the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, the hospital has purchased echo probes sized specifically for smaller patients.

Echo probes are required to complete echocardiograms, a noninvasive test needed to create an image of a heart to assess its structure and functional problems. Saint Joseph London already offered probes for teen and adult patients, but younger patients often had to be transported to other hospitals for this test. The grant from the Kentucky Colonels means Saint Joseph London will be able to take care of all patients, despite their age.

“Reducing the stress of travel and transfers for our youngest patients and their families is why this grant is so helpful,” said Terry Deis, president, Saint Joseph London. “Because of the Kentucky Colonels, these patients can get the testing they need, closer to home.”
