On Monday, Nov. 14, TELUS’ representatives dropped by the Maternal Child Unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital to present a cheque for $4,000 to help purchase new Avalon FM30 Fetal Maternal Monitors to be used now at St. Joseph’s, then at the new Comox Valley Hospital once it opens next fall.
“At TELUS we give where we live to improve the lives of youth and their communities through the power of technology by funding projects that benefit health, education and the environment,” said Raymond Lawson, TELUS General Manager-Vancouver Island.
“We are proud to support the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation with funding to give those in the Comox Valley and North Island better health through the purchase of Avalon FM 30 fetal maternal monitors.”
The $4,000 grant was given to Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation by the TELUS Community Action team, and was presented to CVHF president Brenda Kelm and Vice President Bill Anglin.
“We are very grateful to the TELUS Community Action team for this generous grant to support the growing needs of healthcare in the Comox Valley,” added Katie Maximick, Communications & Fund Development for CVHF.
“These fetal maternal monitors are very advanced and will be an invaluable addition to the already excellent service in the Maternal Child Unit at St. Joseph’s and will benefit the staff, new mothers and their babies for years to come.”
