Group of Five Fundraiser

Generous Donations Boost ER Education

The CEPA education group is thrilled to have received the generous support of New Westminsters' own Group of Five, a grass roots organization dedicated to supporting the Royal Columbian Hospital. With a track record of providing years and thousands of dollars in support to other departments, the group has turned its focus to improving the ER.

Sim Funding Photo

Through just two fundraising events, they have raised enough money to purchase three pediatric simulation manikins, as well as an airway trainer! Pictured above are Gerda Suess (left) and the branch manager, Mr. Nigel George (right) of the 6th & 5th branch of the Scotiabank, who matched the Groups funds!!!

The equipment will be used to train medical students, residents, nurses, RTs and physicians who work in the RCH emergency room.

The CEPA simulation training program is starting from the ground up, and we are extremely grateful to have received this support from the citizens and businesses in our community! The equipment should serve for years to help provide excellent care for patients coming through the ER door at RCH.
