New Capital Campaign Raises Funds for Women's Health & Birthing Centre

September 1st 2019

“Ready. Set. Baby!” campaign is the new 2019 / 2020 capital campaign and is raising funds for new equipment for Women's Health & Birthing Centre (WHBC) at BUH.

The WHBC strives to create a warm, friendly and safe environment that lends itself to enhancing family-friendly surroundings with principles that promote a concept of wellness and prepare families for active participation through the evolving process of childbirth.

There are approximately 500 babies born at BUH each year and funds raised will support the purchase of four new, specialized birthing beds.  These will replace the current beds that are reaching end of life.  Funds will also purchase three new monitors, one with cable-less technology, that can separately track mother’s and baby’s heart rates for enhanced diagnostics.  The monitors will be replacement units for those that require updating due to new technology, as well as introduce the cable-less technology that provides more freedom of movement to mothers during labour.  All equipment is designed to allow medical staff to focus on the patient, not the equipment, so the best care possible can be provided.

The fundraising goal for “Ready. Set. Baby!” capital campaign is $164,000.  Thank you for supporting this campaign and helping to provide the best at BUH when needed most.
