The Thunder Bay Regional Health Science Foundation is helping out Riverside with some new hospital equipment.

Over 40-thousand is being used to replace chemotherapy infusion pumps and purchase an ultrasound machine to assist with the insertion of a PICC line.

The equipment is used by cancer patients when receiving chemotherapy treatments at LaVerendrye Hospital.

“The funding from the Foundation allows us to help improve access to regional care services for patients across Northwestern Ontario. Our hospitals collaborate to provide better care to our patients. This is another example of working together to provide the best care possible for the people of Northwestern Ontario,” says Dr. Rhonda Crocker Ellacott, President & CEO of Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre and CEO of Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute.

Hospital officials add the new equipment allows patients to stay in their home community to receive treatment.
