Dr. Hooker & all of the Emergency Department are thrilled to acquire an Intubation Scope.
The Auxiliary answered an emergency call from Emerge when their intubating scope died. Dr. Ross Hooker explained how essential this piece of equipment was and told members how it worked. This allows an opening of the throat to more easily and safely insert a breathing tube. Dr. Hooker kept saying how this definitely saves lives.

The Auxiliary spent almost $50,000 to purchase it for Emerge.
And the Goldstream News Gazette Wanted to talk about it!
Countless patients at Victoria General Hospital will benefit from a recent donation from the hospital’s auxiliary.
