Equipment Needs

Your children were born here, a grandparent lives here and your friend’s life was saved here. We understand that often we forget the impact health care has on our lives unless we are at the center of a crisis.

Our Campbell River Hospital touches the lives of more than

people in our community and the North Island.

There are nearly

babies born in our hospital each year.

Each year, our hospital performs over

x-rays and

mammograms.

On average, there are more than

ultrasounds performed each day, that is more than

each year.

Our hospital has one of the most efficient ICU’s in the Province. In 2018 alone, our ICU had more than

ventilator hours.

Our Current Top Priorities

Hospital equipment is advancing rapidly with new technology making it easier to diagnose and treat diseases and disorders. The Campbell River Hospital Foundation is raising money to purchase the equipment our doctors have identified as most urgent. Some items are new and some are replacement items for old and outdated equipment. Every single piece of equipment on our wish list is vital to our hospital’s ability to offer you and those you love the very best treatment and care.

Vein Viewer

Uses infrared light to find and map out veins 10 to 15mm deep. This equipment has real-time image, with an approximate 98% accuracy for assessing actual vein size.

Because it is mobile and easily maneuverable it can be adjusted according to the position of the patient, while leaving the clinicians hands free to perform the procedure. It improves first attempt success rates for IV and lab tests, prevents delaying patient care and staff resources.

GLIDESCOPES

Patient airway management can sometimes be extremely challenging both when a problem is suspected ahead of time but even more so when it is discovered unexpectedly during an operation.

Learn More

The provision of Glidescopes in both the OR’s and endoscopy has enhanced our ability to manage airways. I can say without doubt that the Glidescope has contributed to the safety of patient care, has allowed certain patients to have much less stressful anesthetic procedures and has allowed the Anesthesiologists to have much more confidence to carry out their role in providing great care to every patient under their care.

2 Omni Hysteroscopes

This equipment will enable our Obstetric/Gynecological surgeons at Campbell River Hospital to assist women suffering with abnormal bleeding symptoms without having to undergo major surgery and possibly removing the entire uterus.

Learn More

The Hysteroscope works with the Myosure Tissue Removal System, a removal is a hysterscopic treatment that targets and removes uterine tissue including fibroids and polyps.

These scopes support patient care by performing both a diagnostic and operative function in one in an all-in-one scope.

Our Events

Many caring and dedicated businesses and individuals support the Campbell River Hospital Foundation every year through a variety of fundraising efforts.

From Gala evenings, Golf Tournaments, Auctions, Walk-a-Thons and Picnics, no event is too big or too small. Events on our behalf raise thousands of dollars each year to support quality healthcare at our Hospital.

 

Trivia Night – February

Trivia night is a fun-filled FUN-draiser for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation and has raised more than $213,000 to support vital equipment purchases that support quality health care for Campbell River and the North Island.

Because You Care Lottery – Spring

Are you ready for your next travel adventure? There are only 2,750 tickets, at $40 each or sets of 3 for only $100, and can be purchased online and with various retailers.

Scrap Metal Challenge – June

Our purpose is simple: to raise money while fostering a little bit of competition within the business community, and help local residents clean up their own scrap metal for a good cause. Since the challenge has begun, over $97,000 has been raised for the purchase of medical equipment for the hospital.

Golf. Because You Care. – September

Since 1996, our tournaments have raised over $350,000 for the Campbell River Hospital, thanks to the tremendous support provided by community sponsors.
