Golisano Children's Hospital patients benefit from increased access to technology
By: Lee Health Foundation
Golisano Children's Hospital recently caught the attention of a new Naples resident, Lee Rosenbluth. Rosenbluth is founder of Bringing the Outside World Inside Foundation (BOWI Foundation), established to provide hospitalized children with the ability to communicate with the outside world.
After research into Golisano Children's Hospital and learning of its focus on providing children and families with a facility that is brightly colored, kid-friendly and infused with technology as a core characteristic of the patient experience, Rosenbluth was moved to provide support that would not only embrace these characteristics that align with BOWI Foundation's mission, but also meet an increased need during the COVID-19 pandemic.
BOWI Foundation's donation of eight virtual reality headsets, seven tablets and two laptops to help patients stay connected with the outside world have made all the difference for recent patients and their families.
"Making this donation was important to the foundation,"
BOWI Foundation has donated desktop computers, laptops, tablets and now virtual reality headsets to 26 children's hospitals all over the world. The foundation, which works with the hospital's development offices to make it easy to acquire the technology equipment, also works with the hospitals' information system departments to make it available to the children as quickly as possible.
