QCH needs YOUR support now, more than ever.
Our Emergency Department is seeing high volumes of patients with complex care needs. COVID-19 has illuminated the fact that we need more space in our hospital, as on most days, QCH operates at or above capacity.
Each day, hundreds of patients turn to the QCH Emergency Department for urgent care. Some requiring admission may wait for hours, and in some cases overnight, on a stretcher in the hallway until a bed becomes available on an inpatient unit.
With an increase in the number of people coming to QCH for urgent care, hallway medicine is a reality, but QCH has come up with an innovative way to help address this critical issue by repurposing space within the hospital.
By Building Space Between the Walls, we are creating a comfortable, modern, fully-equipped space for 15 bed bays. The new area will be located close to the Emergency Department, Diagnostic Imaging Department and Operating Rooms to improve patient flow for fast, efficient, and integrated care.
With no government funding available for this important project, we need YOUR help to fund these renovations. Every donation made to the online fundraising page will be matched by Yorkville Asset Management Inc., up to $25,000.
