A new Surgical Video Tower for GBGH

A new Surgical Video Tower for GBGH

Will you help us reach our goal of $80,000 for a new Surgical Video Tower, and ensure that we have two functional Operating Rooms at Georgian Bay General Hospital?

 

 

Currently, your GBGH has two operating rooms, where more than 3,900 surgeries are performed each year.  BUT, only one can be used at a time.  To operate in the second room simultaneously, a second video tower is required. 

All laparoscopic and arthroscopic surgeries require this tower, as these microscopic procedures rely on video technology to be effective. 

“We use the Video Tower for every gallbladder surgery, most appendectomies, and increasingly, for colon cancer and hernia surgeries.  It is essential equipment for any operating suite and having a reliable tower is key to growing our surgical program to provide gynaecology and urology procedures locally.”   

– Dr. Eileen Sacks, Chief of Surgery, GBGH

 

“When I required Emergency Surgery, I was so grateful that our hospital was equipped with everything the surgeons needed to get me back to health.  I want to do my part to make sure that future patients at GBGH have the same opportunity.

Our hospital needs the Surgical Video Tower.  Please join me, and make a donation to help purchase this vital piece of technology.”                     

~ Mike Thor, GBGH Patient

 

 

NOTE: In the event we reach our fundraising goal for the Surgical Video Tower, we will direct additional funds to another area or equipment purchase of greatest priority for the hospital.  Thank you for your support!
