In 2020, Fondation Santé made a commitment to fund the acquisition of:
A new treadmill for stress electrocardiograms and an electrocardiography table for cardiac ultrasounds.
Allowing more than 80 patients annually to undergo a stress test in their area, rather than having to travel to another hospital.
For more efficient and rapid servicing of patients, optimizing the staff’s workload and reducing wait times in the emergency room.
Purchase of three bilirubinometers for the Integrated Perinatal Services and Early Childhood teams, to do quick evaluations of jaundice risk and propose treatment if necessary.
Optimizing the work of nurses by enabling this type of assessment to be done at home, thus avoiding a trip to the hospital for patients.
Increasing the number of post-cancer follow-ups in addition to faster detection of recurring bladder cancer cases.
Reducing care time and eliminating the need for staff to borrow equipment from another department for emergencies.
