InEight Donates $10,000 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital Virtual Visits Initiative
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – InEight, a leading construction technology solutions provider based in Scottsdale, Arizona, has donated $10,000 to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Virtual Visits initiative — a program designed to keep patients and their families connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Virtual Visits, which are already used in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, employ cameras in patient rooms so family members and patients can see each another as much as they wish, at a time when in-person visits must be reduced for everyone’s safety.
The program allows family members to connect to cameras using their smartphone, tablet and/or PC through a secure network. It is one of several initiatives put in place by Phoenix Children’s during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect patients, families, visitors and staff.
“We are so grateful to InEight and all they are doing to help support our community during this difficult time,” said Kim Ho, corporate development officer, Phoenix Children’s Hospital. “Their generous donation will allow families to connect in a meaningful way while they keep a safe distance, and help foster continued innovation within the hospital. We thank them for being an amazing partner.”
“Phoenix Children’s Hospital has built a national reputation based on outstanding patient care, and we are proud to support such a vitally important organization during these unprecedented times,” said Jake Macholtz, CEO, InEight. “At InEight, we understand the power of technology to transform the world, which is why we chose to support the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Virtual Visits program and help families stay virtually connected, even when they have to be physically apart.”
