Trustees, left to right, are Bruce Jorgenson, Frank Travis, John Luhm and Chester Strecken bach. el The Shelton General Hospital Association recently made available to Mason General Hospital $35,000 to cover cost of equipment recently installed in the Intensive Coronary Care Unit. This Unit has already served more than 65 patients, most of them residents of Mason County. It would not have been possible to establish a special unit, at this time, without the support of this sizeable contribution from the Shelton General Hospital Association, according to Laurel Nelson, Administrator of Mason General. The Board of Directors of the Association were able to make the grant in view of the pending sale of the old Shelton General Hospital property. This is in keeping with the objectives of the Board in that such fundsare used to help with hospital and medical services in Shelton and Mason County. This latest direct contribution for the purchase of highly specialized and modern equipment is the largest single allocation made by the Shelton General Hospital Association. Mason General Hospital has been the beneficiary of other major contributions from the Association. These have included landscaping to the grounds around the new hospital, and purchase of illuminated signs along Thirteenth Street marking the visitor and emergency entrances to the hospital.

Long before Mason General Hospital received its first patients the Shelton General Hospital Association actively assisted with financial support. During the planning period of the soon-to-be Public Hospital all organizational costs were underwritten by the Shelton General Hospital. This direct contribution exceeded $15,000 which was spent between 1964 and 1968. This assistance acted as a spring-board in the total planning and preparation for Mason General Hospital.

The cost of care at Mason General Hospital is still less than the cost of care of most hospitals in the surrounding area, Nelson said. Although sometimes referred to as the "Old" Shelton General Hospital Association its Board of Directors has kept attuned to the continuing need for improved hospital and medical ~ervicem The Shelton General Hospital Association has conducted for many years, and places great emphasis on, a recruiting program for physicians. The Board recognizes a specific need for several more doctors serving Shelton and Mason County, and efforts along this line will continue into the future. Another important area being fully explored by the Shelton General Hospital Association are scholarships and the continuing education of health care personnel. The Board is interested in embarking upon a program that would permit hospital personnel to attend clinical and professional seminars when they need to "up-date" their skills in providing better care to the community. The Board of Directors of the Shelton General Hospital Association consist of representatives from the Granges, the Parent-Teachers Associations, urc ase the Chamber of Commerce, Labor, Veterans groups, the Hospital Auxiliary, the Mayor of Shelton, the Chairman of the County Commissioners, and a member of the community at-large. The present membership includes: John L. Luhm, president; Bruce E. Jorgensen, treasurer; and Frank A. Travis, Richard F. Angle, C.W. Streckenbach, Martin Auseth, Warren Edinger Sr., Mrs. Betty Lou Nelson, Robert J. Watson and William Dickie. S.W. VanderWegen is appointed by the Board as secretary. AT CAPITAL SAVINGS Your Choice...
