KEY AUTO PARTS AND THE ATC DONATE CAR SIMULATOR TO ACUTE INPATIENT REHAB UNIT AT MCCH

Key Auto Parts together with the Murray Independent & Calloway County Schools Area Technology Center (ATC) worked together over a year’s time to create a car simulator to assist in therapy treatment for patients in the Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit of Murray-Calloway County Hospital.  

The car which was designed and built by the welding class led by Chris Rose and the carpentry class led by Brian Provine who were instrumental in developing the car simulator. The simulator allows therapists to work with patients and their families on car transfers without having to leave the facility.

“The car is used multiple times every day by our therapists. We are very thankful for this donation which would’ve cost us around $10,000 to purchase,” said Cassie Broker, Director of Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation.

The Foundation supports MCCH and the community through numerous philanthropic opportunities such as the new Anna Mae Owen Residential Hospice House, purchase of new, state-of-the-art medical equipment and more.
