Sutter Amador Hospital accepted a generous $228,000 donation from the American Legion Ambulance Service to help support the hospital’s Emergency Department.

Al Lennox, president of the American Legion Post 108 Ambulance Services (ALA) and Alan McNany, vice president of the ALA, presented the check to hospital CEO Anne Platt, physicians and staff of the ED.

“We are extremely thankful for the generous donation from the American Legion,” said Anne. “We value our partnership with the American Legion as we work together to provide compassionate and quality health care to this community. This donation goes a long way in assisting us to provide additional services in our Emergency Department.”

Al Lennox, who is involved in ambulance services for the past 30 years, said the collaboration and care that Sutter Amador provides is essential to Amador County, and is one the organization is proud to support.

As SAH’s ED is the sole community provider for Amador County, the donation will be used to purchase several pieces of equipment, portable cardiac monitors and wheelchairs for ED patients. The funding will also allow the Emergency Department team to complete cardiac stress testes directly in the ED.

The Sutter Amador ED sees approximately 80 patients per day.
