Major Fundraising campaign 2018-2020
Rise… To the challenge to maintain and improve the quality of care at our hospital
If the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation hopes to continue its mission of supporting our hospital’s development, it needs to be able to provide the financial resources for projects that our community identifies as important. Likewise, the Foundation’s ability to influence decisions at the institutional level depends largely on whether it has sufficient funds on hand to leverage the funding of priority projects for our community.
Please rise to the challenge by supporting major upgrades in key areas of the hospital and to purchase vital equipment.
The BMP Foundation has committed to raising $5 M during its 2018-2022 fundraising campaign. It goes without saying that all funds the Foundation raises will be reinvested in the BMP Hospital.
The Foundation plays a key role in maintaining and improving the quality and safety of the health care and services offered to the population of the entire region, from birth to end of life. This is why it is so important for the community of Brome-Missisquoi to support the Foundation in raising sufficient funds so that it can influence decisions at the CIUSSS de l’Estrie – CHUS regarding any new project critical to the community.
Improve the capacity and the operation of the surgical unit
Every year , more than 6, 500 patients enter the surgical unit. Patients enter the surgical unit for a variety of procedures performed by general surgeons as well as specialists in orthopedics, gynecology, ophthalmology and urology, among others.
The operating block at the BMP Hospital will include operating rooms equipped with the latest equipment, allowing medical and professional teams to perform surgical procedures in a safer and better-adapted environment.
Every patient, whether they are coming for an appendectomy or a total hip replacement, will be assured of care that meets 21st century standards and best practices.
Facilitate access to the orthopedic clinic
Our Orthopedic Clinic is recognized as a referral center for the treatment of secondary traumas related to typical regional activities like skiing and cycling, but it suffers from accessibility problems. The Hospital and the BMP Foundation plan to remedy this by relocating the clinic. This will also improve confidentiality and enable the medical team to work more efficiently.
The new project will meet the highest standards in terms of infection prevention and accommodate patients with reduced mobility in a safe and comfortable environment ergonomically adapted to their needs. The new clinic will be conveniently located on the ground floor, near the main entrance and medical imaging services.
Visitor attendance over the past two years has increased by an average of 13%. We expect a similar increase for the year 2018. The new Orthopedic Clinic will be able to fully handle this increase in visits.
Purchase new medical equipment with state
In order to ensure that our standards of excellence are never compromised and that the BMP Hospital remains at the forefront of health care, the Foundation is committed to supporting promising projects and acquiring medical equipment that meet current and future hospital needs.
Equipements such as, colposcopes for the external surgery clinic, cardiac monitors for the emergency department and digital graphy apparatus for the imaging services department.
