Winners drawn for sold out Hospital Foundation Because You Care Lottery

With 2,500 tickets sold, the 2017 Hospital Foundation Lottery was a smashing success.

Three lucky winners were drawn and are excited to claim their prizes.

The grand prize went to Shelley Flick from Campbell River. She was the winner of $10,000 cash and a $10,000 Travel Voucher.

The second prize went to Keely Assu from Quathiaski Cove. She was the winner of a trip for two to the Royal DeCameron Resort, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The third prize went to Janice Trerise from Surrey. She was the winner of one return trip for two to any scheduled WestJet destination.

Money raised will be going towards the purchase of a Portable Ultrasound for the Maternity Department.

“It is very exciting to be getting a brand new ultrasound machine to use on the Labour and Delivery ward in the new hospital. Ultrasound scans are vital to the safe care of Mom and babe during pregnancy,” says Dr. Kristen Duckitt. “While most pregnant women’s ultrasounds are undertaken in the Imaging department, it is vital to have access to a good quality ultrasound machine to help us tell which way up baby is, exactly how baby is positioned, look at twins and where the placenta is. Sometimes we need ultrasound to look for a heartbeat. Depending on experience, more sophisticated ultrasounds may be performed. We send our thanks to the Hospital Foundation and their generous donors for making this happen.”
