Prince George Motors (FORD) has chosen to donate $25,000 to Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation to be used to support better patient outcomes in the north! The funds will be directed to Spirit of the North’s latest capital campaign that will see a dedicated maternal operating room at UHNBC. Recognizing that UHNBC is the birthing centre for the north with an average of over 1150 births per year, the need to have a dedicated O.R. has been identified as an area of greatest need. This project has a cost of $322,000. Their donation will go a long ways towards making a difference in the overall project.
Thank you Prince George Motors!
“This is an amazing contribution to a great area of concern for surgical patients.” Said Judy Neiser, CEO for Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. “Emergency and high risk births can’t be planned, but when they arise they can affect many other areas of service in the surgical department. This is an area that has been identified by Northern Health as a need and we are doing what we can with donors to see that there is less disruption of surgical services by having one operating room reinstated and dedicated to maternal patients. It truly is a win-win for all patients.”
