Generous Donations Purchase New Medical Bed for CKHA’s Oncology Department

Generous contributions to the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation (CKHA) have allowed CKHA to purchase a new medical bed for the Oncology Department. Valued at more than $6,500, this new bed will provide a comfortable, safe and secure place for CKHA’s Oncology patients to rest while receiving treatment.

“This new, upgraded, medical bed is a welcome addition to the Oncology Department,” says Vivianne DeWitte, Integrated Clinical Coordinator, Oncology/Palliative Care, CKHA. “Our last bed served us well over the years, but an upgrade was urgently needed. We are happy that our local Oncology patients once again have a comfortable alternative to a medical chair to receive treatment while in our care.”

The purchase of this new bed was made possible through generous contributions to the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation in support of the Oncology Program at CKHA.

“On behalf of the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation, thank you to the individuals and organizations who have generously supported our ongoing efforts to provide CKHA with the funds needed to purchase urgently-needed capital equipment for our local hospitals,” says Michele Grzebien-Huckson, Executive Director, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation. “Without your contributions, we would not have been able to purchase this important piece of equipment for CKHA’s Oncology Department. We are very grateful for your support.”
