Ascension Saint Thomas is pleased to provide 480 free Panasonic Long-Range Baby Monitors to low-income Middle Tennessee families, courtesy of a product donation by Panasonic Corporation of North America.
Some video monitors were distributed this week to expectant parents at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital and Saint Thomas Medical Partners’ Holy Family Health Center in Nashville, as well as Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro. The remaining monitors will be gifted to families in need through various Ascension Saint Thomas-led outreach programs.
On September 7 at Nashville Municipal Auditorium, a limited number of free baby monitors will be gifted to expectant parents who attend the Ascension Saint Thomas Medical Mission at Home—a free healthcare event for uninsured and underinsured individuals ages 18 and up.
“Ascension Saint Thomas is incredibly grateful to Panasonic for their generous donation,” said Kristen Toth, Vice President of Women’s, Children’s, and Oncology Services, Ascension Saint Thomas. “The baby monitors will benefit hundreds of families across the Middle Tennessee area as they are distributed in hospitals, physician practices, and at the upcoming Medical Mission at Home.”
The Panasonic Long-Range Baby Monitor promotes infant safety with features such as Digital Enhanced Cordless Technology, which allows for secure, interference-free connection through an independent closed network.
“We know there are great expenses that come with a new baby, and underserved families often struggle to afford the bare necessities, said Alejandra Ceja, Executive Director, Panasonic Foundation and Office of Corporate Social Responsibility. “Our corporate culture is anchored in contributing to society and we want this contribution to give those families one less item to worry about.”
