During the year, the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society works hard to raise funds to support various
projects, large and small, for Peace Arch Hospital.

We staff and operate our Superfluity Thrift Shop as well as the Hospital Gift Shop.

Groups within the Auxiliary hold many different fund-raisers at different times of the year to contribute
to the financial well-being of the Auxiliary Society.

The Green Light Laser

2012 – The Green Light Laser – $160,000

The GL Laser is used to reduce an enlarged prostate. Formerly the patient would have two or three inpatient days, a risk of bleeding, possibly requiring a blood transfusion, and longer recovery time. The GL Laser vaporizes the tissue so no risk of bleeding, and there is less risk of subsequent nerve damage as well as no days in acute care.

Surgical Laparoscopic Tower

The Lucas 2 provides effective, consistent and uninterrupted compressions.
Providing adequate and appropriate compressions during CPR can be very tiring and using the Lucas 2 with automated compressions removes the fatigue and the individual variations that can occur while performing this procedure.The Lucas 2 is easy to handle and can be applied to the patient with limited interruptions of manual compressions.

Carl and Rose Robles demonstrated how the new Sabina Lift is used to assist patients who have been bed-ridden for and extended period to work towards gaining mobility. The device makes for safer transfer of patients and a safer work environment for employees. The Sabina Lift was a recent purchase by the Auxiliary.
