A fundraiser held at the Sydenham Curling Club in Wallaceburg earlier this year, has resulted in the purchase of equipment for front line staff at Wallaceburg’s hospital.
“We are very happy to share some positive news,” the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation said on social media.
“With proceeds from our Charity Curling Classic event, we were able to purchase an Automated Chest Compression Device for Chatham-Kent Health Alliance’s Emergency Department – and it is now officially in use by our #HealthcareHeroes.”
Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation officials added: “This piece of equipment provides automated CPR to critical patients, and could not have come at a better time. So glad we have been able to support our front-line staff.”
Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation’s 9th Annual Charity Curling Classic presented by ProResp Community Respiratory Therapy took place on Saturday, February 1.
A total of 64 curlers came together to support the purchase of the Automated Chest Compression Device, raising over $16,000.
