Through the generosity of donors, the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation has been able to continue its strong support for cardiac care at TBRHSC with $274,000 in grants to purchase new, specialized pieces of equipment such as a unit for the Cardiac Cath Lab that clears away hardened plaque from arteries and help locate veins deep inside the body for pacemaker insertion. As well, a second life-saving intra-aortic balloon pump, which opens up arteries to restore blood flow after a major heart attack or failure, ensures 24/7 coverage for patients.
Each patient has unique healthcare needs. So, be involved with us as we plan your care. We respect your individuality, faith and cultural background.
