The Moose FM Radiothon is back for the 14th year running.
This year’s We’re All Heart Radiothon in support of the North Hastings District Hospital Auxillary will take place throughout the day August 13th.
The fundraiser is looking to purchase cardiovascular care equipment for the hospital. Dr. Parm Keila, Local Site Lead at the Hospital, says they have a working relationship with the Peterborough Regional Health Centre when caring for patients. However, the North Hastings Hospital still needs equipment to diagnose patients and make sure their ride to the Centre is comfortable.
For these reasons, Keila says this year’s fundraiser will go to buying a new ECG heart monitoring machine and a trauma stretcher that keeps patients comfortable in transit. They also plan on purchasing an i-STAT blood analyzer machine, which monitors enzyme levels in the blood of patients. With these pieces of equipment, Keila says the hospital can provide patients with the care they need when they need it.
