RVNAhealth staff and Rotary Club members gathered in appreciation of a grant recently received by RVNAhealth, made collectively by the Ridgefield, Stamford and Danbury Rotary Clubs, and matched by Rotary District 7980. Funds allowed RVNAhealth to replace outdated computers with new laptops for better efficiency, portability, security, and improved access to the agency’s electronic medical record (EMR).
On Feb. 25, RVNAhealth hosted the three clubs, plus district representatives, at its Center for Exceptional Care for lunch and a show of gratitude, including a staff “meet & greet,” a presentation on agency services, plus tours of the RVNAhealth facility on Governor Street in Ridgefield.
“As in any modern-day business, technology is central to our work and ability to operate,” notes Theresa Santoro, RVNAhealth president & CEO. “Among many positives, these new laptops will ensure the security of our data and seamless access to our EMR. We can’t thank this team of Rotarians enough for understanding our technology needs and supporting our needed upgrades.”
The mission of RVNAhealth is to promote the highest quality of life at every age through compassionate healthcare, community and public health services, and wellness programs. We appreciate the Rotary Clubs’ generosity in helping further our mission!
