Thank you for supporting the Sun FM 17th Annual Radiothon with virtual donations in support of Women’s & Children’s Health Services at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
Funds raised in our 12-hour day go directly to the highest priority needs within the Women’s and Children’s Department at our hospital. Despite the pandemic, babies are being born, equipment needs to be replaced, and new technologies are giving staff opportunities to provide even better care.
This year, funds raised will purchase equipment essential for the critical care of moms and babies during their stay at VJH. Today we require:
When a newborn baby needs their heart rate, respiration or blood pressure measured, this is all done efficiently through one monitor. Less interruptions and quick response with an alarm should the levels not be in appropriate ranges.
Designed to reduce stress, the isolette is a cocoon-like warm environment for a newborn baby. Often, premature babies are unable to maintain body heat and need to be protected from drafts and cold air and protected from germs.
When closeness matters, a hospital bassinet is central in delivering great care for newborns. Providing a comfortable sleeping environment, a safe design and height adjustability allows baby to be at eye level with mom, helping to promote mother-infant closeness from the bedside.
The Sun FM Have A Heart Radiothon is my favourite day of the year! While the format is changing, the intent isn’t. It’s a way for community to connect and support our hospital by giving to where it’s needed most.Betty Selin, Morning Show Co-Host Sun FM Radio, Speaker, Entrepreneur
