OhioHealth Hardin Memorial Hospital is proud to announce, they recently donated an automated external defibrillator (AED) to the Hardin County Agricultural Society. The AED will be housed in the community building and will be available to be used throughout the fairgrounds.
The donation was made possible through the Hardin Greatest Need Fund which is funded during the annual OhioHealth Giving Campaign in October. OhioHealth Hardin Memorial Hospital associates can opt into donating to this fund which is used for the community or their associates during a time of crisis. “The staff of Hardin Memorial Hospital is extremely generous and is always looking for ways to help the community. The AED donation is just one more way of showing how much we care about our community,” stated Joy Bischoff, Chief Nursing Officer of Hardin Memorial Hospital.
Corey Ledley, Hardin County Fair Board President said, “the boardwould like to thank OhioHealth and Hardin Memorial Hospital for providing guidance and funding for this project. In addition to the fair and various building rentals throughout the year, our community building serves as an emergency shelter when a crisis impacts Hardin County. Implementing this life-saving technology is a great benefit for both our fairgrounds and our community.”
