A new piece of equipment has been added to the Women's and Children's ward of the Cypress Regional Hospital, thanks to the generosity of the Sandra Schmirler Foundation. The Schmirler Foundation donated $48,300 to the Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation during the 2016 Ford World Women's Curling Championship, the gift was designated toward helping newborns. The Panda Infant Warmer is a critical piece of life-saving technology designed as a tool to help save the lives of newborns. Not only does it weigh the infant and keep him or her at an optimal temperature, it also provides the medical staff with an array of tools to monitor the child, and if necessary, resuscitate, clear airways, provide oxygen, and more. With this purchase, the Cypress Regional Hospital now has a Panda Infant Warmer in each of the delivery rooms, providing newborns with the best possible level of care available should they require it.
The Dr. Noble Irwin Regional Healthcare Foundation would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation for giving to the residents of the Cypress Health Region, and helping to Keep Healthcare Strong, for our smallest patients!
