COOPERSTOWN – Bassett Hospital today announced it has received an $8 million grant from the Scriven Foundation to upgrade patient-care equipment.

The money will buy surgical instruments, patient-monitoring and lab equipment, and patient exam tables, among other purchases.

“We always seek to provide the highest possible degree of comfort and safety for all of our patients, and this gift will ensure that we meet our goal in every instance,” said Dr. William LeCates, the hospital’s acting president, in a statement thanking the foundation.

Scriven Foundation President Jane Forbes Clark said the gift comes as Bassett “refocuses on strengthening fundamental patient-care quality and safety issues,” and said the foundation will continue to work with LeCates and the hospital on “improving health outcomes across the region.”
