The new facility will triple the size of the current Emergency Department and is described as a “flagship” in emergency medicine. Lotto proceeds will buy much needed equipment such as defibrillators, ventilators, specialized psychiatric furnishings, and vital sign monitors.
More than 55,000 visitors sought medical attention in the NRGH Emergency Department last year; it is the busiest Emergency Department on Vancouver Island.
The New Department will open by September 2012 and offer both emergency and psychiatric services in one Department. You can be a part of its success by buying a lucky Lotto for Life ticket for any of the 76 incredible prizes, including trips, vehicles, and the $100,000 Grand Prize. The Hospital Foundation is raising $4 million for essential equipment, the largest amount the Foundation has committed to any single Department.
