Mount Saint Joseph Hospital
Mount Saint Joseph Hospital (MSJ) is an acute care community hospital with 101 beds, and 100 extended care beds for seniors.
Support patient and resident care at MSJ with a donation to one of our many fundraising campaigns. Here are some of our current priorities and campaigns.
Isolation/Trauma Room in Emergency
Providing the best possible care for you and your family is a priority for the medical team at Mount Saint Joseph (MSJ) Emergency Department, but the best care must also be delivered in the most appropriate setting. For some patients, this means caring for them in a self-contained room separate from other patients, families and staff.
To make this possible, the MSJ Emergency team needs to create a Isolation/Trauma Room within the busy department. This will be used to diagnose and treat patients showing signs of a serious infectious disease or patients who need immediate intervention for a life-threatening medical condition. To learn more about the Isolation/Trauma Room, call Janice Waud Loper at 604.806.9351 or Angus Ng at 604.877.8335.
JULY 2016 UPDATE – Read about a recent donation supporting the Isolation / Trauma Room at MSJ.
Breathe Easy Campaign
Outdated respiratory equipment at MSJ is being replaced through the Breathe Easy Campaign. On the list of equipment that is urgently needed are bronchoscopes, a diagnostic device used for tests on patients with lung-related symptoms. UPDATE July 2016 - Two bronchoscopes have now been funded.
Also on the list of are a variety of ventilation or “mechanical breathing” devices including transport and home care ventilators for patients with chronic respiratory conditions, or neuromuscular diseases. To learn more about other Breathe Easy Campaign needs, call Janice Waud Loper at 604.806.9351.
