OSF Saint Clare Medical Center Tree of Lights Campaign Pays off With Surgical Tool Advancement


The annual Tree of Lights campaign at OSF Saint Clare Medical Center in Princeton, raised more than enough money for the purchase of a so-called Scope Buddy. According to information provided by OSF Healthcare, a Scope Buddy is an endoscope flushing aid, an integral piece of equipment for the special procedures team. The Scope  Buddy creates a consistent, reliable and safe means to flush endoscope channels. It provides enhanced data monitoring, increased cleaning consistency and decreased risk of cross-contamination. The Tree of Lights campaign made the purchase of this innovative surgical item via the community participating and helping to pay for the tool while raising $5,128.00 toward the purchase. Since the inception of the Tree of Lights in 1990, more than $120,000 has been raised for different departments of the hospital.
