BHSF 2015 106Critical Care Fund

The Critical Care Unit (CCU) at the Brant Community Healthcare System is a 15-bed specialized area which provides for the needs of patients from Brantford and our surrounding areas that require immediate and continuous monitoring and intervention of life-supporting treatment.

With a team of highly specialized medical professionals such as physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and pharmacists, the BCHS provides a holistic (body, mind, spirit) approach to care.

The Critical Care Unit is now treating close to 1,200 patients annually. Congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, stroke and pneumonia are only some of the conditions treated on this unit.

As a local physician, I recognize that many of our life-saving and life-sustaining equipment that Critical Care staff work with daily are available to patients because of donor dollars. Our approach is about putting patients first and we need access to state-of-the-art technology to identify, diagnose and treat individuals under our care.”

The Brant Community Healthcare System Foundation is committed to raising funds to support the top priority needs for The Brantford General and The Willett, Paris. Your donation helps us purchase patient equipment not funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The equipment supported by donor dollars isn’t all ‘nice to have’ — it is critical patient equipment required to perform daily diagnostics and care for our patients.
