Rai Family of H&I Roofing Donates $10,000
December 31, 2021: The Rai Family of H&I Roofing presented a generous donation of $10,000 to Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation. We are extremely grateful to receive a donation from them every year – they have been our Partners in Health Care since 2004, donating a total of over $150,000.
This year, they wanted their donation to go where it is needed most on our list of equipment. The Foundation elected for it to help fund a Portable Ultrasound for the Chronic Pain Clinic at Ridge Meadows Wellness and Urgent Primary Care Centre.
Chronic Pain has been linked to disability, higher rates of anxiety and depression, dependence on opioids, and reduced quality of life overall. A Portable Ultrasound Machine will allow ultrasounds to be taken at the point of care, increasing the efficiency of diagnosis and treatment. Physicians supporting urgent care and chronic pain programs have identified this as a critical need, as it allows them to assess and provide long-term management of chronic pain conditions to patients without subjecting them to long wait times. Approximately 1080 patients per year will benefit from this service.
Thank you to the Rai Family for your continued support, and for helping to fund this important piece of equipment.
