Significant donation for Keystone of Life

A cheque for $8,905 was presented to Fraser Canyon Hospital on behalf of the Keystone of Life Foundation, honouring bariatric needs.

Representatives of the Keystone of Life Foundation (KLF) traveled to Fraser Canyon Hospital to present a cheque for $8,905 on Friday, March 27th.

The hospital purchased a Stryker bariatric stretcher for its emergency department with the funds.

For the Hospital, this device significantly increases patient comfort and well-being, allowing a patient’s weight to be assessed in-situ, which means that medications can be better calculated,” stated Dr. Joshua Greggan of the device.

The device also allows patients to adjust the profile of the stretcher themselves to maximize their own comfort, and for X-Rays to be taken without the need for patients to be removed from the stretcher.

The KLF director emphasized that the Keystone of Life Foundation relies on donations and other forms of giving from all sources to enable it to continue making these kinds of grants.

The grants are necessary for hospitals to keep up with increasing demands. KLF is closely associated with Royal Arch Freemasonry throughout the Province and relies on the generosity and cooperation of many of these Masons to carry out its mandate of supporting hospitals in the region.The support is essential for the optimal functioning and success of these facilities.
