Once again we are asking you to support our Light for Life campaign. Money raised is used to purchase equipment that helps ensure that high quality health care continues to be available for the thousands of people that use Centre Grey Hospital annually.
Ever since the hospitals establishment, over 50 years ago, this community has been highly committed to it. That commitment was never more evident than when over 13 million dollars was raised in the capital campaign Quality Care Close to You and it continues as planners work with municipal representatives, GBHS staff and Ministry of Health officials to finalize plans for our new hospital. In the meantime, equipment must be upgraded if we are to maintain our high quality health care services.
This years list of needed equipment, with the estimated cost of each item includes:
Operating Room Table $80,000
Heavy Duty Power Drill $36,000
Oscillating & Sagital Saws $12,200
Blood Bank Freezer $9,200
Slide Stainer $15,000
The estimated cost of this is $158,900. Fortunately this equipment can be moved to the new hospital but it must be purchased now to support medical staff providing the excellent care we now receive.
Please help us make the Light for Life campaign a success again this year. Complete the donation form and include it with your donation indicating your name or the name of the person you wish to honour. It will be placed on the Tree of Life in the entrance of the hospital and a tax receipt will be issued.
On behalf of the Foundation and the hospital staff, I want to thank you for your support and wish you peace, joy and above all, good health for the Holiday Season and throughout 2008.
Dan Rose, Chair
Centre Grey Health Services Foundation.
