Shelton's PerkinElmer awards $5K to surgical program

PerkinElmer in Shelton recently awarded a $5,000 grant to Griffin Hospital to support the expansion of its surgical services.
The grant was made through the PerkinElmer Foundation, which supports programs designed to address human and environmental health.
“We are grateful for PerkinElmer's generous support of our surgical expansion project, which will provide our patients with minimally-invasive robot assisted procedures for an exceptional surgical experience with faster recovery times and better outcomes,” said Griffin Hospital Chairman of Surgery Dr. Richard Salzano.
The funds will aid Griffin’s multi-phase surgical expansion project, which will enhance its surgical capabilities and expand capacity to better serve the growing number of individuals across the region that are choosing Griffin Health for their care.
In 2017, Griffin built a new Ambulatory Surgery Suite to increase the number of pre-op/post-op rooms and provide easier access for patients and caregivers. Griffin is now preparing to increase its number of operating rooms from six to seven and building a state of-the-art technology operating room to accommodate robotic surgery cases for its da Vinci Xi Surgical System.
