The Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation is governed by a group of dedicated volunteers whose purpose is to raise funds for the medical needs of our community hospital. The Board of Directors consists of 11 directors who each serve a 3-year term.
Our directors bring to the Board a variety of backgrounds offering their unique skills and talents to ensure the Foundation’s success.
The Foundation Board is a working Board elected by its members. Directors and members serve on various committees such as the Events Committee, Golf Committee, Community Relations Committee, or the Finance Committee.
All directors and members contribute their time and effort without any payment or benefit other than the satisfaction of contributing to the community.
The Mobile X-Ray Machine
Posted: November 7, 2018
Your father is involved in a serious car accident, and is brought to the emergency room unconscious. The emergency room physician places a breathing tube and connects him to a ventilator, a machine that breathes for him. The Mobile X-Ray Machine is called for to confirm the proper placement of the breathing tube…
The Mobile X-Ray Machine is essential to assess critically ill and trauma patients at their bedside, and can quickly and easily be moved to any location in the hospital, where the state of the art wireless technology provides an immediate, high resolution image in 3 seconds. This advanced technology also provides high quality images of patients who are unable to remain still including infants, children and those suffering from trauma.
The size and design of the Mobile X-Ray Machine makes it safe to use in a crowded situation, such as a trauma, which may involve up to 10 medical personnel working on one patient.
Your donation will allow us to ensure that the most critically ill and seriously injured patients in our region have access to the state of the art equipment they need to diagnose and treat their conditions. Thank you for your support!
Any funds raised in excess of our goal will be directed to the purchase of other priority medical equipment for Kootenay Lake Hospital.
