Bruce Peninsula Hospitals Foundation invites you to take a chance to win and support your hospital! This year’s proceeds from Hooked on Health will help in funding the purchase of two new X-Ray Machines, one each for Wiarton and Lion’s Head Hospitals.

     Did you know that combined, the Lion’s Head and Wiarton Hospitals provide over 8000 x-rays every year? Our x-ray machines are workhorses running around the clock, and are often referred to as the first line of defense when diagnosing patients. Most patients who end up in the ER, and those who are admitted at some point in their hospital journey will need an x-ray. The new x-ray units will transmit lower radiation doses while producing a higher quality image, and will include a mobile component, so if a patient cannot come to the Medical Imaging Department, the portable x-ray can go to the patient.

     Our current x-ray machines were purchased and installed over 15 years ago. Typically, we expect  x-ray machines to last about 10 years, so they are seriously overdue for replacement. Our need for the new x-ray machines is great, but so is the price. Each machine costs a little over $500,000 (the government provides very little funding for medical equipment like x-ray machines).

     When you purchase a Hooked on Health lottery ticket, not only are you eligible to win one of five great prizes, you are also contributing to making this advanced technology available to our families, friends and neighbours in their times of need, right here, close to home.

     We welcome your help to save postage.  Please consider providing us with a self-addressed, postage paid return envelope for your ticket stubs or allow us to use your email address for ticket number notification. Otherwise, ticket stubs will be mailed, once they are processed.

On behalf of the many people who will benefit from your kindness and generosity, please accept our sincere gratitude for your support. Best of luck!!

Thank you for your continued support of Local Health Care
