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 Some items are new and some are replacement items for old and outdated equipment.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.
