    <p> Delta, BC &ndash; This past spring, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation launched a campaign to raise funds to purchase a new ultrasound machine for Delta Hospital&rsquo;s busy Surgical Services department. &nbsp;Through the incredible generosity of the Foundation&rsquo;s donors, funds were raised in record time. In total over $150,000 was raised. Not only could the Foundation purchase this urgently needed new machine, but they were also able to purchase additional critically needed items for Surgical Services.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> When longtime donors, Harlow and Mary Ann Burrows, learned of the campaign they immediately offered their support with a generous donation of $80,000.&nbsp; As one of the first patients of Delta Hospital&rsquo;s Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Matt Lewington, Harlow was grateful that he and Mary Ann could help support the purchase of the new ultrasound.&nbsp; Foundation donors, Bob Binkley and Shirley Cook also generously pledged their support with a large gift towards the campaign as they felt this was a very worthwhile cause to put their philanthropic dollars towards.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> &ldquo;As always we are truly humbled by the generosity of our donors. A heartfelt thanks to Harlow and Mary Ann, Bob and Shirley, and to all donors who responded to the spring campaign by mailing in a cheque, donating online, or dropping by in person,&rdquo; says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation.&nbsp; &ldquo;We are absolutely thrilled that Surgical Services will not only be receiving a brand new ultrasound machine, but also a number of other critically needed pieces of equipment to support the thousands of surgeries that take place at Delta Hospital each year.&rdquo;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Delta Hospital anaesthesiologists use ultrasound technology in surgeries as an invaluable tool for diagnosis and treatment.&nbsp; Advances in technology are making ultrasounds even more helpful, providing a sharper, clearer picture for rapid assessment of critically ill patients, emergency access to veins and the ability to manage pain control using less opioid medication.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Surgical Services at Delta Hospital has seen a steady increase over the past several years, as the needs of the community grow. The hospital performs a wide range of general surgeries, eye, plastic and orthopedic surgeries, as well as a number of colonoscopies and gastroscopies every year. Last year, almost 9,000 procedures were performed in Surgical Daycare and Endoscopy combined.&nbsp; Ensuring departments like Surgical Services, have access to the latest most advanced technology is vital in providing the best possible care for our growing and aging community.&nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p>
