You Can Help Cross Items off our Christmas Wish List

December 8, 2018

Christmas is a time for families to be together – to laugh, to love and to share in the magic of the season. At the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, our staff sees, each day, the impact new equipment has to their Department.  Because of you, more patients will have access to life-saving medical equipment; ensuring loved ones can spend more time together. Please, consider a gift towards any one of these critical pieces of equipment at our Health Sciences Centre.

Kristin and Dr. Shahbazi Recommend: A Portable Ultrasound for the Renal Department - $61,020


Renal dialysis is a life-saving treatment for patients with kidney failure. However as Dialysis Access Coordinator, Kristin and Nephrologist, Dr. Shahbazi can attest, dialysis can’t begin until a catheter is inserted and for that, it is essential to have a portable ultrasound machine. This critical piece of equipment is also used for assessments related to hemodialysis vascular access, peritoneal dialysis catheter, fluid balance and many other investigations that are integral for patient care. Help Kristin, Dr. Shahbazi and the entire Renal Department care provide life-saving care this Christmas.

Gifts can be made:
Phone: 345-4673
In person: At the Donation Centre next to Robin’s Donuts inside the Health Sciences Centre
By mail: Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation, 980 Oliver Rd. Thunder Bay, ON P7B 6V4

With each gift comes the opportunity to personalize a star to hang on our Grand Christmas Tree inside the lobby of the Health Sciences Centre. Thank you for your generosity this Christmas season and all year long!
