Surgical Restart Campaign 
Richmond Hospital has been serving this community since 1966 and has earned a rating amongst the top 10% of North American hospitals.  The hospital faces challenges like any other enterprise, such as aging facilities, aging equipment and a lack of space.  Technology and medical practices are much different than in 1966, with better tools available for assessment as well as treatment.  Patients can enjoy faster surgeries and healing times, which in turn will open more spots for waiting operations.
If only, the hospital could acquire some of these new tools and refresh their technical facilities.  This is where we can help. Needed…
  • “Multi-Specialty Minimally Invasive Surgical System” for 1.6 million. 
  • “Lithotripsy Laser” for $185,000    
  • “Cystocope “ for 20,000 each x 4
  • “Microtome Tissue Slicer” for 435,000 x 2
These are just what the doctor ordered, for faster and more accurate surgeries, faster healing time. In other words, the hospital can treat more people, faster, and better than can do so presently.
Richmond Hospital has a two million dollar Surgical Restart Campaign for the MIS as well as some other important pieces of equipment.  Please help the hospital, we depend so much on them.
Thanks to Jim Bindon, Director Philanthropy, Spencer Gall, Senior Philanthropy Manager and Kitty Au, Community Giving Manager for their presentation today.
Our other visitor was Rod Holmes, PE for Rotary Club Prince George.  Welcome Rod, please drop back anytime for a visit.
