A Note from Karli Epstein, Executive Director

Karli Epstein, Executive Director

As we approach the 2021 season of thanks and giving, the TFHS Foundation team remains grateful for your support. We would not have had such a rewarding year without your partnership. It is never lost on us that we are always better together!

We would like to lead with some very exciting news! Our TFHS Board of Directors recently approved the purchase of a VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution Knee Replacement Device for our TFHS Orthopedics team! This state of the art equipment provides our surgeons with benefits that lead to improved patient outcomes, detailed in Donor Impact. Please read on to learn more about the advantages of the VELYS, and why this purchase is so important to our clinical team!

We will soon be kicking off our annual #GivingTuesday campaign, a global generosity movement that encourages people to do ‘good.’ This year, we are supporting our TFHS Annalise King Hall Fund. This fund provides essential fetal demise training and equipment for our Joseph Family Center for Women and Newborn Care staff and patients. For more information about this notable cause, and how you can participate in #GivingTuesday, continue reading this Newsletter.

Lastly, with donor support, our Emergency, Med Surg, and ICU departments are on their way to procuring a life-saving LUCAS Chest Compression Device! All of our contributors - from our community members to our Health System team members - have a profound impact on the care provided at our not-for-profit organization. To learn more about the advantages of this specialized equipment, continue reading.

As we close out 2021, we wish you all a holiday season filled with nothing but love, family, happiness, and good health! Thank you for connecting your hearts with our work – for that, all of us here at the TFHS Foundation remain deeply grateful.

Best Wishes and Much Gratitude,

Karli Epstein
