Jamestown, New York (Wednesday, March 21, 2012)—Crèche recently made a $2,460 donation to WCA Hospital to benefit pediatric patients served by the Emergency Department. This gift was utilized to purchase an infant baby scale, infant blood pressure cuffs, infant and pediatric stethoscopes, and a portable pediatric cart.

“The purchase of this fantastic pediatric equipment will greatly compliment the comfort and quality of care we can provide children during a health crisis,” said Emelia Lindquist, RN, Nurse Manager of WCA Hospital Emergency Department. “Each new piece of equipment is now in use in our current Emergency Department and will continue to be utilized within our new Emergency Department when it opens later this year.”

Calling it the largest disco party on Chautauqua Lake, on Saturday, August 11, at 8:00 p.m., Crèche, WCA Hospital, and the Bemus Bay Pops are teaming up to raise funds to support Crèche and the pediatric patients served by WCA by sponsoring the Boogie Wonder Band on the floating stage in Bemus Bay.
