As we start to appreciate the warmer days and walks around our communities, we take this time to be thankful to all our health care workers, essential employees and frontline workers.
There are fewer visits to the Doctor’s office and fewer visits to the Sylvan Lake Advanced Ambulatory Care Service as COVID-19 keeps us home and safer with social distancing. As of April 23, 2020, AACS saw 4347 patients and in 2019 AACS saw 17,926 patients.
Our fundraising efforts continue with the receipt of:
$22,447.00 from the Provincial AHS Staff 50/50 staff lottery 2019
$2,000.00 Sylvan Lake Yuletide Festival 2019
$267.72 Sylvan Lake Midget Tigers Hockey Team 2019
Monies raised and collected are spent on medical equipment for the AACS. The Space Lab Qube monitoring device valued at $15,000 arrived this February. In 2020 we will be purchasing the following equipment for the AACS:
Airway suction device $860
Charging Wall bracket $550
Vital signs monitor $4,272
Eye Burr $800
The Annual Golf Tournament will be cancelled for 2020 and we want to thank Meadowlands Golf Course, golfers, businesses and volunteers that participated and sponsored this event for the past five years. We look forward to golfing in 2021.
Tim Horton’s Smile Cookie Campaign happens in September and we are planning to participate in this major fundraising event and will be looking for volunteers. We will stay in touch.
Take care, stay safe and wash your hands.
