The Health Services Foundation has been fortunate to receive donations from many different businesses, organizations, and individuals in our community. Featured here are some photos of just a few of our recent contributions.
Each year, over 1000 patients travel to facilities outside the community for required CT scans. Often the time spent transferring patients can have a significant effect on their health and having the ability to offer a CT Scan locally will greatly improve a patient’s chance of improved health.
The Drayton Valley Health Services Foundation has launched a campaign to raise $1.8 million for the purchase of a CT scanner for the Drayton Valley Hospital.
Alberta Health Services has agreed to fund the operational costs of the equipment, but the capital cost will need to be funded by our Foundation. This is the biggest single campaign we have undertaken but we have great confidence in the support of our community
A Computed Tomography, or CT, Scanner works by using digital geometry processing to produce a 3-D image of certain parts of the body including soft tissues, bones, blood vessels, the abdomen or brain. The 3-D image is created by placing together many different 2-D images that are taken at different angles. Doctors can then use these images for specific diagnosis.
