UW Health Donates Computer Monitors to Madison Schools
Madison, Wisconsin - Information technology changes fast in health care, and for a national leader like UW Health that means equipment must be continually upgraded to stay ahead of the curve.
That’s good news for the Madison Metropolitan School District, which will benefit from UW Health’s recent donation of 70 computer monitors via Madison CATS, an organization established to create a sustainable model for providing current technology to the students of Madison Metropolitan School District.
The monitors were delivered and installed in early April at Cesar Chavez School, an elementary school with more than 600 students. The monitors were donated by the UW Medical Foundation, the doctors’ group within UW Health, as a gift to strengthen the local school system.
UW Hospital has also made sizable donations of computer equipment in the past to the Madison Metropolitan School District.
“UW Health is very happy to help support the Madison schools by donating computer equipment,” said Sandy Clark, vice president of information services for UW Medical Foundation. “This extends the life of this technology while saving the schools thousands of dollars and, most importantly, giving kids exposure to current technology.”
