Thanks to fundraising efforts by the Stettler Health Services Foundation (SHSF) and the generosity of the community, the Stettler Hospital and Care Centre now owns two new Anesthesia machines.
According to a Jan. 12 media release from SHSF, the two new machines were funded through the 2022 Tim Horton’s SMILE Cookie campaign and individual donors.
“A very big thank you to the foundation for buying the new anesthesia machines,” said Dr. Pieter Bouwer, of the hospital’s Anesthesia Department.
“This will make a significant difference in patient safety as these machines are much more accurate, and safe, in delivering anesthesia. These new machines also contribute to environmental responsibility as lower gas emissions are achieved.”
