Campbell River Hospital Auxiliary makes another huge donation

A new mammography x-ray machine worth $317,770.33 and much more now calls the new facility home

The Campbell River Hospital Auxiliary is at it again.

This time, the organization has made a donation of over $422,000 worth of equipment to the new Campbell River Hospital facility.

Several items were donated to the new hospital, including a defibrillator, 15 broda chairs, a transilluminator, sleeper chairs, an oximeter and thermometers as well as new shelving and cupboards in the Hospital Gift Shop.

The biggest purchase was a new mammography x-ray machine worth $317,770.33, which the organization says emits 30 per cent less radiation than the old machine.

All money donated comes from funds raised through sales in the Hospital Gift Shop, Hospital Thrift Shop and books by donation that are located in the hospital waiting room. This is all possible due to the hard work of more than 100 volunteers and the generosity of the community, either by donating goods to the Thrift Shop or shopping in the Hospital Gift Shop or Hospital Thrift Shop.
