Recently The Health Foundation announced it ordered the new surgical microscope for which it has been raising funds in the past year, but that it still needed to raise a further $10,000. "We have been gratified by the support we received since then," Ross Fisher, the Executive Director, stated in announcing that the goal has now been met.
"A big thank you has to go out to everyone who responded so generously to make sure we could maintain the cataract surgery procedure in the Yorkton Regional Hospital", Mr. Fisher added.
The microscope is expected to arrive by mid-February. It represents an investment of $212,000 by The Foundation to improve healthcare in the region, including shipping and taxes.
