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.

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 Some items are new and some are replacement items for old and outdated equipment.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

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
