A new bathtub for Giving Tuesday!

On November 29, 2022, YOU came together to raise $34,540 on Giving Tuesday! 

Thanks to Nick & Marina Boudouris (OPA Catering, World Famous Dock Lunch & Pier 21 Restaurant) and everyone who made a donation for Giving Tuesday, a new therapeutic patient bathtub has now been ordered for the 2N inpatient unit at GBGH. 

Arjo Recumbent Bathing System

The new recumbent bathing system features a keyhole shape to give patients more room for their arms & shoulders; hydrosound (ultrasound generated bubbles) for cleaning sensitive skin; adjustable height, foot support and pillow; two shower wands with pressure and temperature control; and loads of safety features!   

This new bathing system will replace the 45 year old tub that is on it’s very last legs – and just in time!  We can no longer get replacement parts, or have the tub serviced, so it’s definitely not working at it’s best for our patients.

Thank you!  We could not have done this without you!
