Your Partner in Community Healthcare

Thank you to the Visscher Group of Companies

Thank you to the Visscher Group of Companies for their generous donation to the Chilliwack Hospital Foundation for the purchase of seven new laparoscopic instruments for Chilliwack General Hospital.

A note from Dr. Susan McDonald, Department Head of Surgery:

These instruments are used by both General Surgery and Urology for minimally invasive surgical procedures such as laparoscopic colectomies, nephrectomies, cholecystectomies, and hernia repairs. As such, they are used essential and used daily in our operating rooms. Having well-functioning and ergonomic instruments are essential for the CGH surgeons to be able to provide the high level of care our patients deserve. New instrumentation will allow us to provide more efficient and safer surgeries. The seven new sets of laparoscopic instruments would serve both our current needs and also well into the future during our planned expansion of services.
