Keystone of Life makes a further Grant
On Friday 27th March 2015, representatives of the Keystone of Life Foundation (KLF) traveled to Fraser Canyon Hospital, Hope, to present a cheque for $8,905 with which the Hospital purchased a Stryker bariatic stretcher for its Emergency Department.
Dr Joshua Greggan said, for the Hospital, that this device significantly increased patient comfort and well-being, allowed a patient’s weight to be assessed in- situ, which meant that medications could be better calculated. The device also allowed patients to adjust the profile of the stretcher themselves to maximise their own comfort, and for X-Rays to be taken without the need for patients to be removed from the stretcher.
KLF Director emphasized that the Keystone of Life Foundation relies on donations and other forms of giving from all sources to enable it to continue making these grants. KLF is closely associated with Royal Arch Freemasonry throughout the Province and relies on the generosity and cooperation of many of these Masons to carry out its mandate of supporting Hospitals in the Region.”
