SUPPORTING INNOVATION AND KEEPING COMPLEX CARE CLOSE TO HOME
By funding leading edge technology, equipment and valuable, innovative programs, the Sturgeon Community Hospital Foundation (SCHF) allows patients in our community to receive the very best in medical care.
Fundraising priorities for 2019/2020 focus on providing equipment to support the crucial services provided by the Critical Care Unit; and funding for patient centred care with the provision of Medical Dispensing Units.
Keeping Critical Care Close to Home is about saving lives in YOUR community. The Sturgeon Hospital has a very busy Critical Care Unit which comprises both cardiac and intensive care beds. This unit sees over 900 patients annually. Having access to the latest equipment saves lives while providing better long-term outcomes. The Foundation is raising funds to support the acquisition of vital equipment and furnishings to ensure patients facing critical health issues have access to the very best care available.
Another urgent Sturgeon Hospital need is an automated medication dispensing system. The new system is more efficient, faster and most importantly, safer for patients. It ensures patients get the right medication in the right quantity at the right time. Our goal is to install five units within the hospital’s busiest departments.
