The Stryker Flyte Suit has become the newest addition to the long list of purchases made by Consolata Healthcare Foundation in support of Connally Memorial Medical Center.

“This generous contribution to the CMMC Surgery Department from Consolata is very much appreciated. The ‘space suits’ have become the standard of care across the nation for orthopaedic surgeons who perform joint arthroplasty procedures,” says Dr. Wade Krause of South Texas Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, also an orthopaedic surgeon at CMMC. “These suits help prevent contamination to patients, surgeons, and surgical assistants when performing these procedures.  The Stryker Flyte suits, as well as the many other contributions from Consolata are helping to improve the quality of healthcare provided at CMMC,” continued Krause.

Over the past 5 years, the efforts of Consolata Healthcare Foundation have provided monetary support to the hospital that includes a grant for a new information system, a grant for a new cardiac monitoring system, laparoscopic surgery supplies, and a lighted sign for the hospital so that it can be easily identified from quite some distance down the highway.

On Saturday, July 30th, 2011 the Consolata Healthcare Foundation, serving the Connally Memorial Medical Center, will be holding its Fifth Annual Casino Night at the Floresville Convention Center.  The theme is “DENIM AND DIAMONDS”. Casino Fun, Inc. will provide the gaming. We will have a live auction in addition to a silent auction. This will be our largest ever gaming night and we invite you to be part of this evening.

The Consolata Healthcare Foundation Board hopes that you can come and join us for a night of fun with a purpose. Our success depends on you and the Wilson County community.  Any future projects of CHF solely revolve around Connally Memorial Medical Center in providing this community the best possible healthcare.

Please contact Katie Etringer (830) 393-1311 at the Hospital for more information or to obtain tickets for the event.
