Did you know that community dollars fund 100% of the equipment in our hospital?
Your generous donations have allowed us to purchase the following upgraded equipment for our new wing.
Patient dignity and staff safety are vital to the best patient care. Portable lifts can be awkward and noisy. Motorized patient lifts have been installed in the Emergency Department stretcher bays, and all inpatient rooms. In most rooms, the lifts extend from the bed to the washroom doors and can accommodate up to 350lbs. In enhanced bariatric rooms, the lifts extend right into the washroom and can safely move someone up to 600lbs.
High Tech “Next Generation Surgical Lighting”
Our surgeons perform such delicate laparoscopic procedures that require the best lighting possible. Our new surgical suites have smart lighting that uses wireless technology. Clinicians can use a tablet or command centre to make adjustments to the lights. These specialized, easy to position lights can even sense an object casting shadow on a patient (like a surgeons shoulder) shutting off several LED lights to eliminate the shadow. Centre handles also accommodate a camera so procedures can be recorded for teaching or patient records. Like all technology in the new surgical suites, these are adaptable to healthcare professionals’ height and standing placement.
Thank you for believing in the importance of supporting the health of your community!
