Quesnel, B.C.-The G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital  has a couple of new  pieces of equipment, thanks to the Hospital Auxiliary.

The G.R. Baker Hospital Auxiliary  donated  just  under $37 thousand dollars to buy  equipment that will  be  used in the  emergency department  and the Intensive Care Unit.

A mobile ceiling procedure light  provides  additional light for minor  suturing or assessments.

The ventilator/bilevel positive airway pressure machine will help patients in ICU who have trouble breathing on their own.  It is especially helpful for those who suffer with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and have had a sudden  worsening of their symptoms  which  could  last for several days.




Thanks and Congratulations! Awesome!
