Commemorative & Memorial Gifts
When people make Memorial Donations in memory of someone who has passed away, that person's name is entered on the memorial plaque located in the foyer of the Health Services near the Emergency seating area. This plaque is available for everyone to view and remember the ones who have passed away.
Tree of Hope
During the Christmas Season, a special program is in operation whereby family and friends can make special donations, either by sending a Christmas greeting or as a Memorial Tribute to someone special.

Current Equipment Needs
At the Strathmore Hospital
Purchase a new macerator for acute care which ensures every bedpan and its contents can be safely disposed of, whilst a new bedpan can be used for the next patient.
Replace wall and portable cardiac monitors from the Dash 4/5000 to the Carescape B450. This device allows medical staff the power to monitor patients with diverse acuities.
Replace the current overhead lift in acute care. This device is the most comfortable and effective way to lift and move patients.
Purchase a new Sorrento chair which is designed to reduce pressure, prevent sliding and falls while encouraging mobilization for patients who spend a majority of their time in bed.
Purchase new commodes that allow patients to easily be transported to the bathroom or shower.
Purchase seatbelt and/or chair alarms which prevent patients from falling from chairs and wheelchairs by recognizing the gesture of a patient attempting to stand. Patient falls are one of the greatest causes of injury in hospitals.
Purchase televisions for seven beds.
