I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that Delta Hospital cares for more seniors than any other hospital within Fraser Health. Delta’s growing and aging population places a lot of demand on our hospital.
But it may surprise you to learn that the average age of a patient on our Medical Unit is 80.
This means, on our 58-bed Medical Unit, where patients often have multiple medical conditions, both physical and cognitive, it takes a team of medical and interdisciplinary professionals to ensure our patients’ needs are met.
In order to provide the best possible healthcare, our medical team needs the best equipment possible. This year's wishlist includes: a vascular ultrasound, bladder scanner, hover jack lift with hovermat, moleculight system wound kit, patient mobility slings and other priority needs for the medical department.
Your support of Delta Hospital is vitally important. Your holiday donation will ensure that our professionals throughout the hospital have the tools they need to help everyone during this busy season.
