Dairyland Power, CoBank support AngelEye cameras at Gundersen
LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Dairyland Power Cooperative and CoBank’s Sharing Success Program have donated $2,500 to add 18 cameras to Gundersen Health System’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Dairyland contributed $1,250, which was matched by CoBank’s program, to add AngelEye Camera Systems, which let parents have 24/7 access to video of their child in the NICU.
“Dairyland is proud to support Gundersen Health System and their efforts to keep families together during an already challenging time,” said Brent Ridge, Dairyland President & CEO. “As a cooperative serving local communities and committed to supporting a work-life balance, we are pleased to collaborate with Gundersen to aid in the addition of this new technology.”
The program helps ease parental anxiety and promoting family bonding.
“This camera system brings comfort, connection and bonding for the moments families cannot physically be next to their newborn child,” said Jonathan McKenzie, Gundersen Philanthropy fficer. “This year my wife and I had twins born early and we fully realize the importance of this system. We are comforted to know families will remain connected to their babies day and night, no matter where they have to be.”
