Time running out for lottery tickets

There are just two weeks left to buy your Because You Care Lottery Ticket, with proceeds supporting two departments at Campbell River Hospital – maternity and emergency.

Each year approximately 400 babies are born at Campbell River Hospital and there are times when a baby needs a higher level of care and must be transported to another hospital; the majority of time the baby can be flown by Air Ambulance.

When flying isn’t possible, a Transport Incubator or Isolette is used. It is attached to a stretcher that will load directly into an ambulance and will provide the warm, safe environment and quick access necessary for optimal neonate care. Caregivers can select temperature, humidity and oxygen concentration of the incubator microenvironment while the Isolette provides continuous data on the temperature of the precious little patient.
