On Air: for Healthcare Radio-thon

On Air or HealthcareYear Round Campaign

 Your donation and support has the power to change the future of
healthcare at BUH.



Battlefords Union Hospital (BUH) Foundation and CJNB/Q98/93.3 The Rock/ BattlefordsNOW of Pattison Media and presenting sponsor, Fisher's Drug Store, have once again partnered to raise funds to provide enriched healthcare for The Battlefords and surrounding communities.  The 2021 "On Air: for Healthcare" Radio-thon will take place at the radio station, 1711 - 100th Street, (no donors are allowed at BUH, we apologize for the inconvenience) on Friday, May 14th with broadcasting starting at 6:00am on all three stations.   Funds raised are for BUH Foundation’s 2021/22 capital campaign, "Advanced OR Technology: Mending. Healing. Healthy." for new anesthetic machines for the OR at BUH.

The Operating Room (OR) at BUH runs four theatres, each with their own anesthetic machine.  An anesthetic machine safely monitors, ventilates and oxygenates patients during their surgical procedures.  This ensures a drug-induced, reversible state of unconsciousness, loss of memory, pain relief and relaxation of muscles for patients.  Surgeons are then able to complete the surgical procedures in a safe and timely manner for best patient care.  "Advanced OR Technology: Mending, Healing. Healthy." campaign will raise funds to replace two of the current anesthetic machines, bringing advanced, technologically sophisticated equipment and care to the patients at BUH.

The 2016 "On Air: for Healthcare" Radio-thon was hugely successful and raised most of the $600,000 BUH Foundation had committed to the purchase of a new CT Scanner.  In 2017 the community came through again and helped to raise the funds for the new Ears Nose & Throat Surgical equipment which had a campaign goal of $380,000.  In 2018, "On Air: for Healthcare" Radio-thon contributed largely to the $216,000 campaign goal to purchase a new Central Cardiac Telemetry System to provide an up-to-date heart monitoring system within BUH.  The community stepped up again in 2019 to reach the goal of $500,000 towards a new mammography unit for Medical Imaging to help detect breast cancers early and save lives.  In 2020 the radio-thon was post-poned to October due to Covid-19 and wonderful support was received towards the almost $330,000 campaign goal for new equipment and technology for the Lab at BUH.

  Thank you for the continued generosity that has made a difference to patients in our community.  We are grateful!
