Fraser Canyon Hospital has urgent need for stretchers

Stretchers needed in Hope’s emergency room cost $12,000 each

Fraser Canyon runs a busy emergency room, and it needs your help.

Fraser Canyon Hospital Emergency Department in Hope needs four new stretchers for their Emergency Room. The Emergency Room is the first point of contact for most patients, so it is important to have modern and suitable stretchers to accommodate as many patients as possible.

In 2017, Fraser Canyon Hospital saw 11,504 Emergency Room visits, provided care to 502 inpatients and experienced 15,672 visits to ambulatory care. Fraser Canyon’s ED needs four new stretchers, which can be costly at $12,000 apiece, but are vitally important in order to care for emergency patients.

A Run for Hope event was held in September that drew out several participants. Donations and registration fees for that event also went toward this initiative.
