The Grandview Health Centre will benefit from a recent purchase of equipment thanks to the Grandview Legion-Ladies Auxiliary-Branch 14. The Ladies Auxiliary raised funds to contribute towards buying a new Cardiac Monitor Defibrillator for the Emergency Room at Grandview Hospital. The purchase price of the new unit was approximately 14,000 dollars.
Grandview Health Centre Care Team Manager Richard Kunicki says Prairie Mountain Health sincerely appreciates the ongoing dedication and commitment the Legion Ladies provide to health care in the community.
“This new device will improve the capacity and reliability of emergency room treatment in Grandview and augment our existing machines. It also increases our ability to monitor CO2 levels within the facility’s Emergency Department,” Kunicki stated.
The Auxiliary which has over 60 active members has been consistently raising funds for health care in Grandview using a combination of fundraising strategies including collecting community, business and family donations. They also hosted a very successful ‘Bud, Spud and Steak Night’ feeding over 200 people, helped cater Kinsmen lunches, the Grandview Mud Bog and other community-based events.
