Pen Bay Healthcare, a Maine-based nonprofit organization, recently acquired six electronic fetal heart rate monitoring systems for the Birth Center division, thanks to a charitable gift from Cascade Foundation. Through this cutting-edge patient monitoring solution, Pen Bay’s Women’s Health and Birth Center can now offer a more versatile fetal monitoring solution to expectant mothers, allowing them easy mobility around the clinic while they undergo hydrotherapy and fetal monitoring.

This newly acquired electronic fetal monitoring equipment is integrally built  to deliver precise patient data such as the fetal heart rate and maternal contraction patterns in real-time from the facility’s labor and delivery unit directly to the physician’s computer. Women’s health clinicians at Pen Bay Healthcare can now closely track their patient’s health during pregnancy and access critical patient data round-the-clock from anywhere.

Pen Bay Healthcare Foundation Development Leadership director Nicole den Ouden and Women's Health director Kathleen Hastings reported that this recent obstetrics care equipment upgrade will further optimize the patient care and safety they deliver to the entire Midcoast Maine community. "It's gratifying to see the generosity of our community at work in helping advance the quality of our assessment tools and ultimately, the patient experience," Ouden added.
