Battlefords Union Hospital Foundation recently received a large donation from the North Battleford Lions Club to their capital campaign, “Advanced O.R. Technology: Mending …Healing … Healthy.”

The plan is to purchase anesthetic machines for the operating room at BUH, replacing the current 15-year-old equipment in three of the four operating theaters.

“This couldn’t have come at a better time and we are grateful to the community and the NB Lions Club for supporting this initiative. There are approximately 4,500 surgeries for pediatric and adult patients and we want to give them the very best of care, which includes top-notch medical equipment,” said Chris Etcheverry, director of Acute Care Services, BUH.
