The Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation recently received a $5,292.00 grant from the Keystone of Life Foundation, for the purchase of a bariatric stretcher for the Emergency Department of the Castlegar Health Centre.
Joan Conkin, Patient Care Coordinator at the CHC, notes that the new stretcher has a greater weight capacity and is 5 inches wider than the existing stretchers, making it an important acquisition for Emerg, improving both the safety and comfort of larger patients.
Special thanks to the Keystone of Life Foundation for supporting the Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation in their work for those in Castlegar and areas.
