Education event, fundraiser at Mission hospital

On July 14, the public can learn about three pieces of medical equipment that the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation is fundraising for.

On July 14, the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation will be holding an education event at Mission Memorial Hospital.

It will be taking place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and visitors attending the event will be educated on three key pieces of equipment needed for the hospital and why they are of extreme significance.

The three pieces – a Gastrascope, Colonscope and Beamer Mate Electrosurgical Generator – are needed in order to succeed in providing precise diagnosis’ to patients that come in.

Each of these devices cost $38,000 to $55,000 and money needs to be raised in order to do so.

Mission Memorial Hospital and Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation believe that those with kind enough hearts to donate should know exactly what their money is going to, and the potential lives they could impact by helping us raise this money.

“This latest technology will have a significantly positive impact on the care of the patients of Mission Memorial Hospital and the residents of Mission. It will allow us to continue providing the very best care to our community,” said Dr. Henryk Pluta, gastroenterologist at Mission Memorial Hospital.

The educational event will go in-depth so possible donors can see first-hand what donations will be funding. The event will educate those who wish to learn more about how they can help save a life and become a hero.

Everyone is welcome to attend the session on July 14.
