The KVH Foundation's Gala has benefited various areas throughout Kittitas Valley Healthcare. Learn more about past beneficiaries and watch the videos to see what your generous support has helped provide.
2018- Anesthesia Machines
At KVH, we are dedicated to providing quality care for our patients. With over 1,500 surgeries performed each year, those that are planned as well as the unexpected, patients can trust they are in good hands. Our anesthesiology providers and care team have a huge responsibility making sure patients have the best possible care at all times and keep risks to a minimum. That’s why the Foundation has committed to purchase two new anesthesia machines to enhance the delivery of anesthesia care for every patient who undergoes surgery at KVH. Each surgery brings new challenges, to overcome these we need the best possible technology.
2017 - Ouchless ER & Pediatric Care
The charitable focus of the 2017 Foundation Gala was to help improve the pediatric experience throughout the Kittitas Valley Healthcare system.
2016 - Digital Mammography
Mammography is the most reliable method of finding breast cancer. It can find what you can’t see - and when breast cancer is detected at an early stage, patients will have more treatment options that are less invasive, with a higher chance of survival.

2015 - Rapid Response Nurse Call System
In order to provide patients and the community with the best possible care, KVH needed to extend a single call system throughout the hospital. The updated system cut extra steps for the sender and unnecessary delays for the patient. The new system allows us to hear auditory and visually throughout the entire facility the importance of what is happening at that moment so that anyone working in any patient care area knows immediately where they need to go and why they need to go there. It gives clear detail to responders on what is needed. It helps improve care, and save lives.
