The Abbotsford Regional Hospital Auxiliary recently donated $50,000 to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) for the purchase of a ventilator.

The ventilator will be used in the intensive care unit, but is also compact and sturdy, allowing it to be used for patient transport.

The FVHCF was established in 2000 to build partnerships with individuals, organizations and businesses to support services within the Fraser Valley Regional Hospital District.
