$239,000 Donation from the BRHC Health Auxiliary

Members of the Brandon Regional Health Centre (BRHC) Auxiliary were recently able to make three generous equipment purchases totalling $239,000 for BRHC. These included;

  • Portable Echocardiology unit ($77,000) which uses ultrasound to assess the function of the heart and determine the presence of many types of heart disease.
  • Massimo Monitoring System for sleep apnea patients x 8 units ($76,000). These units monitor sleep apnea patients post surgery when they may have respiratory issues as they come out of the anesthesia.
  • Urology Laser ($85,000) greater precision and accuracy can be achieved with laser procedures, and are less invasive resulting in less bleeding, swelling and pain.  It is also a good alternative for patients who are not suitable for open operations.
