Gowlland Towing donation arms Campbell River hospital with biopsy gun

Gowlland Towing Ltd. recently donated to the Hospital Foundation to support the purchase of two Bard Biopsy Instruments (biopsy guns) for the medical imaging department in Campbell River Hospital.

The biopsy gun is a tool used to extract sample of cells or tissue from the breast for microscopic examination; the specimen is taken from a lump or mass that was detected on an imaging test such as mammography or ultrasound. The biopsy gun removes a very small piece of tissue, making the procedure less invasive and improving recovery time.

You can support the doctors, nurses and other key members of your local healthcare team, and help ensure that you and your loved ones continue to receive first-class healthcare right here at home by donating on line at www.crhospitalfoundation.ca or calling (250) 286-7164
