C-Arm Urology Table The C-Arm table is used for image-guided urologic procedures. It ensures easier patient transfers and keeps patients in the correct position.

2016 EQUIPMENT PURCHASES When our caregivers have the right tools and equipment, our patients can receive quality care, close to home. Here are a few items that were purchased in 2016. Your donations make this possible. Your donations matter.

Progressa Bed

The Progressa bed system is a therapeutic device that acts as a seamless extension of the healthcare team in ICU. It supports early mobility in patients and protects them from developing pressure ulcers via a weightbased pressure redistribution. www.becauseiCcare.com

Negative Wound Pressure Therapy Delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) at the wound site through a unique dressing helps draw wound edges together, remove infectious materials and promote the formation of tissue.

Vein View Finder The Vein View Finder facilitates visibility and location of veins for more successful IV insertions. This makes IV starts easier on infants, children and elderly patients. It allows clinicians to “see through” skin and easily locate veins regardless of a patient’s body type, age or skin tone.

Low Air Loss Pressure Relief Mattress with Pump This special mattress is designed to prevent and treat pressure ulcers by managing pressure redistribution, skin microclimate and edema. It encourages lymph and blood flow for prevention of tissue deformation and skin breakdown. 7

“Just do it. Stewardship is what it’s all about, pass it on to the next person.” Moyra O’Pallie

www.becauseiCcare.com

Moyra Hughes O’Pallie is one interested and interesting woman. Although not originally from Sault Ste. Marie, she’s made this city her home and she is invested in the happenings of this community. As a former elementary school teacher and principal, she still gets recognized by her students as she’s walking and biking around town. O’Pallie makes a point of educating herself: “Be alert. Be informed. Keep in touch with what’s going on around you.” That’s O’ Pallie’s community minded approach to life. For this reason, she has always been very involved in municipal, educational, parish, boards and committees: "I am an activator, not just a spectator.” She took this same approach when deciding how to direct her gift to the Sault Area Hospital Foundation. Welcoming the opportunity to learn more about the hospital’s equipment needs, she toured several departments when making her decision. It wasn’t until she learned about the needs of dialysis patients during a meeting with Renal Department manager Mindy Lindstedt that she decided where her donation would be best put to use. Moyra’s donation helped purchase 30 state-of-the-art dialysis machines. This equipment not only helps the caregivers offer quality treatment to renal dialysis patients, but also gives comfort to their loved ones as well. "Ed (Moyra’s late husband) would have been very pleased with this decision to help many others." Her husband’s health had deteriorated when the couple returned to the Soo after a brief post-retirement absence. During their time in Alliston, Ontario, the O’Pallie’s could not find a family doctor. By the time they finally met with a physician in Barrie, Ed’s diabetes diagnosis was serious. Weekly treks to Sunnybrook Hospital left the pair struggling and feeling like they had “fallen through the cracks.” It was then they decided to come home. Thankfully they received excellent care from their “diabetic team” Dr. Bragaglia and Dr. Fratesi - when they returned to the Soo. Moyra calls the pair “real gems” and praises their work ethic. When reflecting on the importance of philanthropy, Moyra’s message is clear: “Just do it. It’s not about how much you give, it’s the fact that you’re doing something”. She tells potential donors that it “feels good to be a part of something bigger”. Thank you Moyra. 13

OUR VOLUNTEERS Thank you for your continued support. Thank you to the SAH Volunteer Association The SAH Volunteer Association has always played a vital role in the Foundation’s fundraising efforts. Currently this group has focused their efforts on raising funds for the CT Scanner. They pledged $200,000 over three years and are well on their way to achieving this goal, with $146,000 raised to date. “We are pleased to report that the SAH Volunteer Association has raised 73% of their pledged amount, ” said Cheryl Pavoni, “which is a testament to their generosity, hard work and commitment to our Hospital. It is a pleasure to work along side this group everyday.” .

“The Volunteer Association and all the volunteers at our Hospital are incredibly generous with their time. They instill generosity, compassion and caring to all the people of our community. They are a group that lead by example and make not only our Hospital, but our community a better place,” Gabe Stefanizzi, Chair, SAHF Board of Directors.
