Family Grant Recipients

“The Acquired Brain Injury Program (ABIP) was fortunate to have received funding for the purchase of an iPad to use as a tool for rehabilitation of our patients. The benefits of the iPad have been numerous, diverse and invaluable to our staff and patients. Thank you for your dedication and support.”

Sandra Sanmartin
Speech Language Pathologist, Acquired Brain Injury Program, Regional Rehabilitation Centre

“On behalf of the staff and patients of the C4 Hematology unit, I wish to thank you for supplying our unit with two NIBP Pulse Oximeters with stands and baskets. Having the extra equipment has decreased the amount of time nurses spend searching or waiting for monitors; therefore, leaving more of their valuable time to be spent at the bedside. The new monitors are faster in producing very accurate results. Your contributions are greatly appreciated by staff and patients alike!”

Georgia Georgiou
Clinical Manager, Hematology & Oncology Day Services, Juravinski Hospital

“The staff and patients at the Bariatric Unit appreciate the funding for the bariatric scale. This patient population is unique, and having specialized equipment, helps make the experience a positive one. Thank you.”
