Campaigns and Endowments
Neonatal Ambulance - $370,000, ongoing
Donations will help provide safe reliable transportation for sick and premature infants by purchasing a custom-built specially-equipped ambulance for Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) patients. As the area's only Level III NICU, Floyd is a destination hospital for infants needing higher level neonatal care. Maintaining a timely response to neonatal transport requests is a critical component to achieving optimal patient outcomes. The new vehicle will have adequate space for the transport and treatment of twins or a baby and mother all in same ambulance. It will also have space to safely transport up to four crew members providing specialized care as well as three family members.
COVID-19 Essential Needs Fund - $200,000, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our community, Floyd Medical Center has quickly adapted to our changing reality to meet the health care needs of our community. Funds raised through the COVID-19 Essential Needs Fund continue to provide support and care.
Mobile Mammography 3D Technology Update – $500,000, 2018 – 2020
The upgraded mobile unit gives women access to screening mammograms at their place of work, physician's office, health department and other community locations.
Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – $2 million, 2015-2018
About 300 babies each year require advanced medical treatment in Floyd Medical Center’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

Providing an environment where these newborns can heal while bonding with their families helps them grow, gain weight, improve and thrive. Campaign funds were used to renovate the Floyd Medical Center NICU to provide optimal development of premature infants, family-centered care, improved privacy and leading-edge equipment.
