It was two days of broadcasting from the atrium of the Cypress Regional Hospital, asking the southwest Saskatchewan community to support a much needed purchase, and they came through in a big way! The piece of equipment in question is a digital portable x-ray machine, which can be wheeled into any area of the Cypress Regional Hospital required, be it OR, ER, ICU, Maternity, or even on the Med-Surg wards. This new piece of equipment will primarily be used for assessing patients that are too ill, or injured to be moved to the main x-ray suite.
Our Pharmasave Radiothon for Healthcare broadcast started with a $25,000 matching donation from Bank of Montreal, and ended with a $50,000 donation from the Kinsmen Foundation, making it one of our most successful Radiothon's to date. Through the course of the broadcast we also had a ton of great support from many sponsors, and a huge response from private donors who helped us to surpass our goal. Thank You!
All funds raised from the Pharmasave Radiothon for Healthcare will be put towards equipment for the Cypress Regional Hospital, including the digital portable x-ray
