Dear Friends and Family,
We want to thank you all for your thoughtful contributions to our 2017 Holiday Season campaign and for your year-round support of the WCGH Foundation’s mission---to help make our West Coast General Hospital the best possible health care facility for each and every resident of the Alberni Valley and West Coast communities it serves.
Formed in 1990, the WCGH Foundation is one of the principal fundraising partners of the West Coast General Hospital. With generous donations and support from the community over the past 28 years, the Foundation has raised over $4,000,000 to purchase or assist in the purchase of essential equipment for WCGH, including: patient lifts, an ultrasound machine, fetal monitor, ICU ventilator, pediatric dental surgical tools, mammography monitors, endoscopy equipment, a laser for treatment of bladder & kidney stones, and our own diagnostic CT scanner. These purchases demonstrate how the Foundation continues to work to ensure everyone, young and old, has access to the best possible health care right here in our community.
This year we are seeking your support in response to a request from our professionals at WCGH Medical Imaging Department for a new state-of-the art Ultrasound machine.
- Radiology practice faces increasingly more complex and challenging cases across a broad spectrum of patients.
- Clinicians need robust ultrasound tools that provide productive, patient-centered care across a wide range of clinical applications.
- The LOGIQ E10 Ultrasound system allows clinicians to visualize extraordinary images with incredible uniformity from near to far field.
- The system’s advanced imaging technology delivers penetration power even in higher BMI patients.
- The LOGIQ E10 Ultrasound provides robust tools that give radiologists a new level of confidence in their diagnostic decisions. We all stand to benefit when that happens.
We need your help to reach our goal of $100,000.00 for the purchase of this much-needed equipment. To contribute to this year’s campaign, kindly fill in the donation form at the bottom of this page or you may choose to donate online at www.wcghfoundation.com.
You can make a personal donation or donate in honor or memory of a loved one. No contribution to our goal is too small. All donors will receive a thank you letter and tax deductible receipt. Donors of gifts of $2,000.00 or more will receive a beautiful framed photograph of one of three iconic Port Alberni scenes in recognition of your generous donation.
Your donations really do make a difference. Thank you for your continued support and generosity. Together we can make our hospital the best possible health care facility for all of us.
The Board of Directors and Staff of the WCGH Foundation extend our warmest wishes to you and your families for the Holiday Season and the New Year.
