Every dollar that you donate to Yarmouth Hospital Foundation through CanadaHelps from June 1st to 30th, 2022, is an entry into a draw for us to win $20,000 that we could put into your regional hospital! “Every $1 donated gives your favourite charity the chance to win so the more you give, the greater the chances your charity has to WIN the grand prize!”
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge coincides perfectly with our Spring Appeal, so we’re pretty thrilled. It’s a great time to encourage the generosity of the Tri-County area towards Yarmouth Regional Hospital, and $20,000 would be a wonderful boost for us. In fact, it would be such a great boost that we’ve decided to sweeten the pot for you, our donors, and have our own draw.
Every donation received by Yarmouth Hospital Foundation through CanadaHelps from June 1st to 30th will get you entered into a draw at the end of the month to win… a prepaid VISA card loaded with $250! It’s win/win! What would you do with an extra $250 in your pocket?
And what would we do with an extra $20,000 in ours? Well, our Spring Appeal is raising funds towards two multiparameter monitors for you regional hospital’s Emergency Department — those are $37,500 each — so this extra $20,000 means we would be halfway towards purchasing one of these, or maybe even a third monitor for your ED! How exciting is that?

Did you know that your Emergency Department had a total of 27,579 visits last year? That’s an average of about 76 visits every single day of 2021!
Your Emergency Department is in urgent need of new patient monitoring equipment — so the YHF Board has selected two multiparameter monitors for your Emergency Department as the focus of the 2022 Spring Appeal.
Multiparameter patient monitoring equipment is used to track vital signs, like heart rate, blood pressure, etc. and variance or variability in these signs. These state-of-the-art monitors assist with diagnosing conditions such as hypertension, Type 2 Diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as helping identify risks such as heart attack or stroke.
Dr. Lauren Maher notes that new monitors are essential for the Emergency Department as, without them, “You feel blind…as a doctor trying to treat the patient. And you need to rely even more so on nursing staff who are already overwhelmed. This equipment, whether it be for cardiac reasons or unstable or potentially unstable patients, is like a constant set of eyes.”
Yarmouth Hospital Foundation is committed to fund a total of eight multiparameter monitors for ED this year — but right now, we’re focusing on getting two of these fully funded by the summer. Each unit costs $37,500, so our target this time is $75,000. Will you help us reach it and purchase this essential equipment for your regional hospital?

Together, we can improve patient care and invest in our collective future by keeping Yarmouth Regional Hospital and the Tri-County area at the cutting edge of modern medical technology.
