The Health Foundation has been upgrading equipment in the maternity ward of the regional hospital in Yorkton over the last year. Purchases include items like fetal heart monitors, infant resuscitation equipment, infant ventilators, new chairs for breastfeeding, infant warmers and bili blankets.
“We are grateful for the donations our donors made, which have allowed us to upgrade this equipment,” said Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation. “The maternity ward of the hospital is a busy with over 700 babies born some years."
In the photo at right the bili blanket is being used by Danielle Wilk and baby Ivy. The bili blankets allow mom to hold the baby while they are receiving phototherapy, which is better than separating mom and baby and placing the baby under bili lights.
