TB Vets Gives $10,462 to Fund Priority Equipment for Respiratory Therapy

April 25, 2019


A big thank you to TB Vets for their generous gift of $10,462 towards respiratory equipment at Delta Hospital! Delta’s seniors population is one of the largest in Fraser Health and continues to grow. Often, longer lives are accompanied by more medical conditions and chronic illnesses that require extensive healthcare services. Thanks to this recent donation, Delta Hospital’s Respiratory Therapy department has a new Optiflow system, Airvo system and Vital Sign Monitor all in support of patients with respiratory illnesses and difficulty breathing. TB Vets Charitable Foundation helps British Columbians with respiratory illness by funding critical respiratory equipment, research and education. In total, TB Vets has donated over $170,000 to Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation.
