Each year Alexandra Hospital determines what new equipment is needed for the hospital. Since government funding cannot supply all the equipment needed, we depend on the generosity of our community members and businesses to fund this lifesaving equipment.
Thank you to our sponsors of our annual theme dinner at the Elm Hurst Inn & Spa. We appreciate their support! They are:

Wireless Access Points – Cost $38,722
Advancements in technology are revolutionizing the way health care is delivered and we must stay current. All facets of the health care team depend on technology, from nursing and finance, to housekeeping and food services.
By ensuring we have the best technological tools, we can attract and retain top health care professionals and provide patients with the best care possible.

A new dishwasher is needed to replace a 35+ year old unit. It will have efficiencies such as energy and water consumption as well as ergonomic design for staff safety.
Portable Surgical Lights – Cost $24,497
These flexible and protable lights are needed for the Emergency Department. They will provide lighting for suturing, wounds and gynecological exams.
Positioning Chair - Cost $4, 076
A positioning chair allows patients to have the flexibility to manoueuver their body to best suit their physiological needs.
Digital Radiography (x-Ray) Portable - Cost $155,396
This new unit will allow a technologist to take a portable x-ray unit directly to the patient. It is especially convenient for those patients who are too sick or injured to be transferred to the Diagnostic Imaging Department.

This fridge will store reagents for patient testing and also cardiac enzymes for cardiac patients. It stores the quality control to ensure test methods are producing accurate results.
