Thank-you EZ Rock Radio for another successful Radiothon as over $14,000 was raised to help purchase equipment for Queen Victoria Hospital maternity ward. The Revelstoke Hospital Auxiliary presented a $5000 donation and RBC Revelstoke gave a $1,000 donation. The Foundation would like to thank all volunteers for the day, Shaun, Patrick and Nicole and EZ Rock, the donors of silent auction prizes and of course all the generous donors from our most caring community.
EZ Rock is raising money for pediatric equipment at Queen Victoria Hospital’s maternity ward. This year they are wanting to help purchase a NeoBLUE LED phototherapy unit to help newborns with jaundice. The new technology allows treatment of jaundice with LED light technology – reduced risk of skin damage and exposes the newborn to less heat thus reducing risk of fluid loss and dehydration. The new light unit will cost $7400. In addition they would like to purchase a jaundice meter ($9700) and a radiometer ($3500). These accessories would complement the NeoBLUE LED light unit to provide the maternity ward of Queen Victoria Hospital with the most effective and safest jaundice light therapy system on the market today. Please support the Radiothon with your donation. See more info on the NEoBLUE light here: 051942E_neoBLUE_overhead_EN_US
