Give. Because

You Care. 

 

A lot has happened since we first started planning our Because You Care Hospital Lottery, and while we are all taking this day by day, we are asking that you consider the healthcare needs that will continue to be essential moving forward in the coming weeks, months and years.

 Now more than ever, we are aware of the immense need for healthcare, across the globe, our country, Province and communities.  Your support will ensure that physicians, nurses and other key members of your healthcare team have the equipment and resources they need to through this crisis and afterwards. 

 With your help we can ensure that all healthcare workers, who have been working tirelessly to keep our families safe, have our support so that we and our loved ones can continue to receive first-class healthcare right here at home.

Thank you, Take Care of each other.

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 Some items are new and some are replacement items for old and outdated equipment.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

Help us Raise $120,000 for Surgical Services

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 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.

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.

Thank you to the Campbell River Community Foundation!Pictured is Josh Samson delivering a cheque to Stacy Marsh of the Campbell River Hospital Foundation to purchase new iPads for residents of long-term care facilities or the ICU.

The Hospital Foundation supports our front line workers as they navigate a new normal in long-term care to protect the residents from COVID- 19. One of the methods they have provided residents is by using technology such as iPads for virtual visits with their family. They are able to connect with each other visually and not just through a window or speaking on a phone. It is especially useful if family members live out of town. They can now have multiple members connect online at the same time to visit with their loved one.

For the residents who have dementia, seeing and hearing a familiar voice stimulates their long term memories and reduces responsive behaviours seen in the progression of this disease. Human connection is key to the vitality of life and the Hospital Foundation is key to sustaining this for Campbell River’s long-term care residents.

If you also believe in this initiative please reach out to the Hospital Foundation to learn more.
