MCCH Educational Center DonationThe Murray Calloway Endowment for Healthcare recently received a $7,500 anonymous donation to update the technology and facilities at the Educational Center of Murray-Calloway County Hospital. This donation went towards new chairs and a 70” television used in training and webinars for educational purposes.

The Educational Services department at MCCH provides on-going clinical education for nurses including orientation, certification courses including Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, CPR, neonatal resuscitation, fetal monitoring and additional mandatory and new equipment training. The department also coordinates on-line journals, learning management for all employees, and continuing education programs.

“The use of technology has become very important in training our entire staff, we are very thankful for the donation to upgrade our equipment,” said Carol Perlow, Director of Educational Services.

The donation was made possible by an anonymous donor who chose to honor Dr. Thomas Green and Dr. Gene Cook, OB/GYN’s at the Murray Woman’s Clinic for their care and commitment to the community.

Dr. Cook has been practicing since 1976 and Dr. Green has been practicing since 1978. They estimate delivering nearly 20,000 babies between the two of them.
