BRITT – The Heart and Vascular Center of Hancock County Health System (HCHS) recently received a special gift from the HCHS Foundation - a high-low exam table designed to simplify patient transfers.

"People no longer have to step up on a small platform to sit on an exam table," explained Ami Frohling, ARNP, and medical director of the HCHS Heart and Vascular Center. "While this is more convenient and comfortable for patients, it also provides a great safety feature to avoid potential stumbles and falls."

The high-low table was funded by proceeds raised during the HCHS Foundation's annual Food, Fashion and Fun event, which was held in April at the Duncan Community Ballroom.

HCHS Foundation Board members sited how this project would enhance the overall patient experience at HCHS.

The mission of the Hancock County Health System Foundation is to cultivate funding for Hancock County Memorial Hospital and it’s clinics for health care services, medical equipment, and/or community needs and programs. This is done in part by the generosity of its donors. If you are interested in giving a donation, please contact Jodi Ball, HCHS Foundation Director, by calling: 641-843-5150 or emailing
