2019 Festival of Trees funding will be used to purchase medical scopes.
The Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre uses a number of medical scopes every day. Over 35 scopes being used today in the outpatient and endoscopy departments are nearing their end of life.
Current scopes are no longer repairable and with fewer functioning scopes, increased wait times are a reality for patients.
Each year in our hospital, scopes are used in over 9,400 procedures. The instruments are used multiple times a day, and often save patients from having major invasive surgery.
Scope replacement is critical.
