A Campaign Success Story!
Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation was successful in meeting their goal of raising $4 million through the campaign in order to acquire essential equipment. Core medical tools and equipment were urgently needed at Campbellford Memorial Hospital to ensure that they can continue to provide quality health care and acute care close to home. New technology also allows them to take full advantage of an increasingly connected health care environment.
They are now able to diagnose more people right here at CMH, detect abnormalities and cancers early, focus on patients, reduce their travel time to other centres for consultations or procedures, and make sure that their experience at CMH is comfortable and safe. Patient-focused care has always been a priority at CMH, and with the acquisition of these and other items they can continue to deliver the level of excellence in patient care our community has to come to expect. It is only by staying current and relevant to our community as a modern health care hub can they ensure the long-term viability of our hospital.
Diagnostic services, or lab services, are the very foundation of patient care. The ability to detect cancers early is understandably important to everyone in our community, young or old. Acquiring colonscopes allows CMH to move forward and establish a colon cancer screening program. Gastroscopes detect abnormalities quickly, efficiently and safely. The latest generation of PACS workstations allows specialists located in other hospitals and medical facilities to remotely review images, which can help to expedite diagnoses. A portable X-ray machine is an important acquisition, both in terms of staff safety and patient comfort.
