Washington may have won the Stanley Cup, but we had the Hat Trick!
In June of 2018, our donors had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a personal tour of our hospital’s new Sterilization Unit (or Medical Device Reprocessing Department, its formal name). Thanks to our donors, in 2012 you provided $5.2 million of the cost to construct, complete and equip three new state-of-the-art operating rooms. In 2014, you contributed to the renovations of the old operating rooms to create the Trevor Deeley pre-and post-op area. And now in 2018, thanks to you, our donors, we completed the Hat Trick with the completion of the MDRD.
The grand opening celebration began with a welcome from SPHF Board President Paul Hames and both Troy Courville, Clinical Coordinator of the OR, and his predecessor Barb Mollberg (who retired in January) expressed their gratitude to our donors for helping to make this leap int the 21st century possible. A special treat was a visit from the Board Chair of Island Health, Leah Hollins, who thanked donors warmly for all they do to support the Saanich Peninsula Hospital.
Tour host volunteers served coffee and cake, and donors donned disposable gowns, bouffants (as those blue hair coverings are known) and booties in order to take the tour. Here are some photos of the event, and if you’d like to take a video tour, click here.
