Our Current Campaign is the:
The KBRH Health Foundation is currently fundraising for the ICU/HART Project. This $255,000 Project will purchase essential medical equipment, which will enhance and standardize care for critical care patients in the Kootenay Boundary.
The Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital is the regional hub for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the High Acuity Response Team (HART), which care for and transport critically ill patients between hospital sites.
The ICU cares for patients who require advanced respiratory support, cardiac support and treatment for single or multi-organ failure. Due to inclement weather in our region and our remote, rural location, often critically ill patients are reliant on ground transportation vs. air for transfers to alternate hospital sites. During these longer transport times, HART supports critically ill patients by providing continuous monitoring and appropriate CPR during transport. Pediatric to senior patients, including bariatric patients, will benefit from this project.
This state of the art medical equipment will allow more patients to receive care close to home and benefit from enhanced support when transported between facilities for specialized care.
We invite you to should you wish to make a donation to the ICU/HART Project.
