Where Your Money Goes

Osler donors give in unprecedented numbers and amounts, helping to build and then fill our hospitals with the medical equipment and technologies needed to support great patient care in our community.

In 2018/19, many donors stepped forward with gifts of every size to collectively make health care better for us all.

The impact of this extraordinary giving is felt in every area of our hospitals, from our emergency rooms to our Paediatric Units, our operating rooms to our Critical Care Units. Thanks to our donors, a few of the equipment available in our hospitals today, include:

  • Vital signs monitors for our Diabetes, Cardiac, Ambulatory Care, Maternal Newborn, Paediatrics, Oncology, and Mental Health Units are used to measure and monitor a patient’s temperature, pulse, breathing, and blood pressure.
  • Ultrasound machines for diagnostic imaging are used to achieve fast, accurate diagnosis for our patients.
  • Wheelchairs to transport patients safely and efficiently to their next clinic appointment.
  • Beds and mattresses ensure good quality rest and care for admitted patients in short or longer term stay.
  • PowerPro stretchers used for emergency transport helps the care team bring the patient to their point of care safer and faster.
  • Scopes for our Surgical Department are used as a guide during surgical procedures to target and remove the tiniest nodes or tumours and help patients get better.
  • Lab automation equipment such as microscopes, centrifuges, and osmometers are used to perform assessments and measurements to help our staff diagnose and treat patients in the best way possible.

On behalf of all those who count on our hospitals for care – as many as 2,000 people a day – thank you for choosing to invest in health care. There are few things as important as your community hospital and we are so grateful for your support.
