Hospital foundation raises money for AED's

December 18, 2003

Valdosta - A South Georgia hospital foundation is attempting to save lives.

The South Georgia Medical Center Foundation and Volunteer Auxiliary are sponsoring the annual Love Light Tree.

This years donations will be used to buy Automatic External Defibrillators to place around the community. The foundation hopes to raise enough money to purchase six units.

"We are considering where there is a high number of people who are at risk for sudden death or cardiac arrest," said Elizabeth Vickers South Georgia Medical Center Foundation Director.

Each donor gets a personalized ornament placed on the tree which is located in the main lobby of the hospital.

This is part of a state wide initiative to place the defibrillators throughout communities in Georgia.
