At Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation
we have our eye on
supporting ophthalmology
services at Kootenay Lake Hospital

We are very pleased that Ophthalmologist Dr. Faye Pesenti will soon be supporting ophthalmology clinic services at Kootenay Lake Hospital by providing two days of clinic services per week, which will include ophthalmology assessments and care, right here in Nelson.

Dr. Pesenti and fellow Ophthalmologist Dr. Marius Scheepers will continue to perform cataract surgeries, as well as other ophthalmology services, at Kootenay Lake Hospital for all Kootenay Boundary patients

Your donation to Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation will help support the purchase of equipment to support the new ophthalmology clinic.

Your support will ensure 20/20 vision
in 2020 for Kootenay area patients!

The Mobile X-Ray Machine

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.
