91.5 CKPR is proud to support the TBRHSF Our Hearts at Home Campaign
October 16 through May 2020
The Our Hearts At Home Cardiovascular Campaign raises funds that are specifically directed to the cardiovascular surgery program at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.
Where else in Ontario do you need to drive a day (or more) to access cardiac surgery? Nowhere. Thunder Bay is the only major city in Ontario where access to cardiac surgery is a day’s drive away or more. No one else in the province lacks this critical access. No one. Even in comparable cities like Sudbury, people can have cardiac surgery. Immediately. Not ‘in a few hours’. Not ‘in a few weeks’. Immediately.
It’s time for us to create local access for people who have the highest need for both cardiac and vascular surgery. To guarantee that care is unquestionably world-class. It’s time for us to keep families together when faced with an incredibly stressful situation. To help patients be supported as they undergo a life-saving procedure. It’s time for us to ensure patients can choose surgery without having to question whether they can afford to travel or whether their companions can afford to accompany them. To remove long-distance travel from the equation.
It’s our time- Time to bring a full Cardiovascular Surgery Program to Thunder Bay!
It is the last missing piece of the healthcare puzzle in Northwestern Ontario. You can make the Our Hearts At Home Cardiovascular Campaign a success so that patients have access to closer-to-home cardiovascular care, shorter recoveries and a much better overall quality of life.
Our hearts are in your hands.
