Golf Tournament 2015!

This years Stanton Territorial Hospital Foundation's golf tournament was held on June 12th, at the golf course! It was a beautiful day to be out on the course, and with the help of 18 teams participating we were able to raise over $27,000! What a huge success!

The money you raised will go towards the greatest need of the hospital! 

 It was a fun filled day, full of food, golfing, sunshine, silent and live auction, and so much more! If you missed out this year, don't worry too much, there's always next year!

The Stanton golf tournament was originally organized by the Arychuk family and Air Tindi, it has since then evolved over the years to become a key fundraising event for the Foundation, the hospital and the community. None of it would have been a success without all of you!

Stanton Territorial Hopsital Recieves $50,000 from  Sandra Schmirler Foundation 

The Stanton Territorial Hopsital Foundation was recently presented with a cheque for $50,000 from the Sandra Schmirler Foundation for the purchase of a Giraffe Incubator for the Obsetrics unit at the hospital.

The state of the art piece of equipment acts as an all-in-one neonatal care station being both a full-featured incubator and a radiant warmer. This integration of features and advanced technology included in one piece of equipment helps reduce the stress to the baby and increase access for the caregiver providing for developmentally supportive, family-centered critical care environment for high acuity newborns. 

"The Sandra Schmirler Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to funding life-saving equipement for hospital newborn intensive care units.We are excited to present a cheque for $50,000 to purchase a Giraffe Incubator for the Stanton Hospital. We have now helped newborns born premature or critically ill who are recieving specialized care in 43 different hospitals from coast to coast to coast in Canada. All funds raised are in celebration of Sandra Schmirler and her love of family remembering that all champions start small." Declared Chris Atchison, Chair of the board of the Sandra Schmirler Foundation. 

"For our babies , Mom's and Staff this is a simply amazing donation that will help keep babies safe for years and years to come. The Staff of OBS are truly thankful and grateful." 

A big thank you to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation for the very generous donation!
