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.
Tele-Visitations are 1 hour video visits with family and friends by videoconference.
We can help keep you connected to family and friends while you are in hospital, or even as an outpatient. Your family may be in another heath facility or in almost any location with internet access. This is a patient driven service, please ask your healthcare provider about the service or contact the Telemedicine Department at extension 6711 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
