The pediatric unit at Abbotsford Regional Hospital (ARH) was in need of four new vital-signs monitors until the Air Canada Foundation flew in to help.
Heather Mash, manager of ARH maternity, thanked the foundation for their donaton.
“One of the things that can be frustrating for nurses when trying to provide timely and patient-focused care is to have to search or wait for equipment to do their assessments,” she said.
Liz Harris, executive director of the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation, said they are grateful for the contribution.
“A gift like this helps make an impact on care for patients. The impact of this gift was noticed immediately,” she said.

The foundation raises funds for vital equipment and programs funded or endorsed by Fraser Health in Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.
