WDMH has a new Force FX Generator thanks to money raised at annual Cloverdale Golf Classic

The Force FX Generator is used to control bleeding during surgery.

Device cauterizes blood vessels

WINCHESTER — The Cloverdale Golf Classic is an annual tradition that combines fun with raising funds. This year marked the 20th anniversary of the event and almost 80 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day on the course. Together, they raised $7,005 for the WDMH Foundation’s General Equipment Fund.

The proceeds from the event have been used to purchase a Force FX Generator for the minor procedure room at WDMH. A Force FX Generator is a small tool used by surgeons to control bleeding during surgical procedure. It cauterizes blood vessels.

“The old generator was at the end of its life, so we are very grateful to the WDMH Golf Association and Cloverdale Links for their hard work in raising the funds needed for this essential piece of equipment. A big thank you as well to the golfers, sponsors and volunteers for supporting the event,” notes Kristen Casselman, Managing Director at the WDMH Foundation. “Many patients at WDMH will benefit from this new equipment and that’s what it’s all about.”

Golf Committee member Chelsea McIntyre and Treasurer Diane Levesque hold the giant cheque for $7,005.00. Missing committee members include Ken Warner (Chair), Dwayne Holmes, Vicki Johnston and Audrey May (Cloverdale Links Manager).
