Beauregard Health System was recently announced as a 2020 recipient of the Funds for Safety Grant sponsored and funded by the LHA Trust Funds. Beauregard Health System previously won this safety grant in 2014 and 2017.
The 2020 safety grant will be used to purchase a CAE Ares Emergency Care Manikin in order to provide extensive hands-on training for members of the hospital’s emergency team. Beauregard Health System will implement this training over the course of the next year.
