OUR 2017 FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN - LOVE YOUR LAB -raised $770,000 to IMPROVE CRITICAL SERVICES IN THE DEPARTMENT OF LABORATORY MEDICINE.
The Department of Laboratory Medicine is a busy department that serves every corner of our health care system, including hospitals, health centers, clinics, the extramural program, and point-of-care testing programs. Generally, with only 4-5% of health care money, Laboratory Medicine supplies 60-70% of information for medical decisions for patient screening, diagnosis, prognosis, and prevention.
The Department of Laboratory Medicine provides approximately 4.5 million tests per year for Fredericton and Upper River Valley areas. The service depends heavily on high efficient and high quality equipment such as analyzers, sample preparation/storage devices, and robotic automation.
The $770,000 raised for our Medical Laboratory will purchase essential equipment to help deal with the increasing demand. Every dollar donated stays right here in our community, helping our neighbours, co-workers, and family members when they need it the most.
Supporting the Chalmers Hospital has never been easier and we invite you to contribute in a way that is meaningful to you. Your gift may be designated toward our current campaign or specific department or service area of your choice. Find out more on how and where you can designate YOUR donation.
