Campbell River Rotary Clubs donate to Transport Incubator

The Rotary Clubs of Campbell River recently presented $10,270 the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.  These funds are the proceeds from the March for Children this past December and will help support the Transport Incubator for the Maternity Department.  The Transport Incubator is used when a babe needs to be transferred to another hospital for a higher level of care. When flying isn't possible, this Isolette is used. It is attached to a stretcher that will load directly into an ambulance and will provide the warm, safe environment and quick access necessary for optimal neonate care.  Caregivers can select temperature, humidity and oxygen concentration of the incubator microenvironment while the Isolette provides continuous data on the temperature of the precious little patient. There are two Rotary Clubs in Campbell River; the Rotary Club of Campbell River and the Rotary Club of Campbell River Daybreak the main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world.  Throughout their history, Campbell River Rotarians have continuously adopted the theme that Rotarians are committed to "putting something back into the community."  This has resulted in millions of dollars and tens of thousands of volunteer hours into projects for the citizens of Campbell River. The March for Children takes place the last Saturday before Christmas, often on the coldest and wettest day!  The March is a partnership between to the Campbell River clubs and has generated more than $370,000 since it began in the 1950's.
