SAULT STE. MARIE – Businessman and philanthropist Robert Considine presented a check to Lake Superior State University’s director of simulation in its school of nursing, Jodi Orm, on July 11 that covers the purchase of four remote tele-health stations.
The units – two lab-based and two field-portables – relay patient vital signs as well as two-way voice and video between doctors, nurses, and EMTs anywhere in the world. The state-of-the-art tools will train nursing and paramedic students, and working professionals, in a simulation center run by LSSU in Sault Ste. Marie.
The contribution was for $179,043.
At the presentation were Kevin Lasser, CEO of JEMS Technology; LSSU President Tom Pleger; and Bob Boesiger and Ron Meister, both board members with the Considine Foundation.
