 More Ball information

Benefiting VitalWatch, electronic Intensive Care Unit (eICU)

The Ball is benefiting VitalWatch, the electronic intensive care units (eICU) at Health First. The funds raised will be used to purchase four eCareMobile units, similar to robots, that will allow the eICU to service any patient room in any Health First hospital, not just in the ICU's.

Health First is the ONLY hospital system in Central Florida who provides this cutting-edge, life-saving eICU technology free of charge to patients and is not reimbursed by insurance companies. 

Watch the VitalWatch video - a fusion of high-technology and patient care unlike anything you have ever seen. And it's only at Health First.
