Proceeds raised during this years Festival of Trees will be used to buy a Centralized Cardiac monitoring system for Ponoka Hospital & Care Centre. The need to update and enhance our delivery of cardiac care is essential. With increased numbers of cardiac patients at our hospital the addition of these new monitors will allow the staff to act upon a potentially dangerous situation more quickly and thus improve patient outcomes. Monitors will also connect remotely with cardiologists who will have the ability to see the monitor rhythms in real time and make recommendations quickly with the accurate information.
