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.
Culturally sensitive care is respectful of people different from us. This means that unique needs, preferences, beliefs and values are appreciated. You will receive care without discrimination based on race, colour, age, religion, gender, national origin, disability, education, income, diagnosis or sexual orientation.
