Because of a generous donation from a local Squamish family the Squamish Hospital now has a CCHD monitor that will be used to test for congenital heart defects before a baby is discharged, giving the baby the best opportunity to thrive. 1 in 4 babies are born with congenital heart defects, some needing surgery or multiple surgeries within the first year. Your donations allow the Squamish Hospital Foundation to make purchases like this; providing the staff at SGH the tools to enhance the service provided to the community within the Sea to Sky Corridor.

Another item the Squamish Hospital Foundation is hoping to fund with donations from the community is a tool that will allow a quick pain free Bilirubin test to be administered for jaundice. This piece of equipment allows for babies to be tested without a needle prick and gives bedside results. Your donations this holiday season will bring this valuable tool to our Hospital.

Please consider donating by visiting www.squamishhospital.com or e mailing squamishhospitalfoundation@gmail.com

TITLE SPONSOR FOR THE DR. KINDREE MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT

Tagged: General News
Authored by: Sophie Moore on July 6, 2017 @ 1:50 pm

The Dr. Kindree Memorial Golf Tournament is excited to announce the Title Sponsor for 2018.   Once again, One Ocean Expeditions have joined the Hospital Foundation as our Event Sponsor as well as donating 2 spots on their 8-day Canada’s East Coast Golf Expedition Cruise to be auctioned off during the live auction.

The signature fundraising event of the Squamish Hospital Foundation is held annually in September. Proceeds from the tournament go towards funding health care equipment, state of the art technology, capital projects and education in the Sea to Sky Corridor.

This year, the Squamish Hospital Foundation will be granting all funds that are raised at the Dr. Kindree Memorial towards much needed new ultrasound technology at Squamish General Hospital. This new machine will increase the types of diagnostic imaging that can be done locally in Squamish; from pre-natal ultrasounds to echo-cardiograms.

We are inviting the community to join us on Monday September 17th and help play a part in the future of our community. Ways to get involved include player and non-player sponsorship opportunities, donating to our auction purchasing tickets to the Blackcomb Helicopter Ball Drop.

With the communities’ support, we can continue to fulfill Dr. Kindree’s vision for the Foundation and heath care in the Sea to Sky Corridor.

For additional information about the Dr. Kindree Memorial Golf Tournament please email squamishhospitalfoundation@gmail.com
