Thunder Bay’s Hospital Foundation is looking for your donations this holiday season.
President Glenn Craig tells us one of the items they would like to buy with your donations is a Portable Ultrasound for the Renal Department.
“The physicians and the nurses right at the bed side can use this really sophisticated diagnostic tool and find out what’s going on. It’s really small and compact, it’s like one of those things out of Star Trek.”
The Hospital Foundation hopes to bring in enough funds to buy four pieces of equipment that comes with a price tag of almost $137,000.
The must have items includes a Defibrillator for the Operating Room, a Fetal Telemetry Monitor and an Infant Warmer for Labour and Delivery.
On Giving Tuesday, over $50,000 was brought in towards the Christmas Wish list campaign.
