Fundraising PSA

It’s time to replace laparoscopic equipment at St. Mary’s General Hospital

Due to the postal strike, this St. Mary’s donation request may be delayed arriving to your mailbox. To ensure you are informed, please read further for details of the most urgent hospital equipment need.

Heading into surgery, you shouldn’t have to worry whether the surgical equipment is up-to-date. Among the remarkable advancements in surgical care, the introduction of laparoscopic surgery in the 1980s was a huge leap forward that rapidly expanded to all surgical areas because of its great benefit for patients. Having surgery done this way means you will have less pain, less scarring and a much quicker recovery. You may even be able to go home the same day.

St. Mary’s is known for its expert surgical teams who provide excellent care to more than 20,000 surgical patients each year, the vast majority of which are performed laparoscopically.

Now, all eight of St. Mary’s laparoscopic systems are operating beyond their life span and must be replaced. While replacement is necessary, it’s no surprise that new equipment also offers significant technological advancements which will provide greater visibility and efficiency while performing your surgery.

The purchase of new equipment is only made possible through the generosity of community members. This holiday season, please consider a donation in your giving plans to help place new laparoscopic equipment into the hands of St. Mary’s expert surgeons, so they can continue to provide the best possible care when you need it.
