SURREY, BC – The Surrey Board of Trade congratulates Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation on today’s ‘Mock Operating Room Showcase’ which launched their Surgical Centre Renewal Campaign to raise $10 million toward the renovation and upgrading of 10 operating rooms at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Their goal is to bring the most innovative medical technologies and equipment to Surrey, which will assist with recruitment and retention of top surgical talent. Surrey Memorial Hospital is in the Fraser Health region, which serves more than 1.8 million residents.
Medical technology demonstrations by Conquer Experience (PeriopSim Virtual Reality) and Medtronic Canada were showcased at Surrey’s Health and Technology District as examples of the health technology innovation.
“This matters to the Surrey Board of Trade because all of Surrey’s economy depends on a strong health care system,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade. “The renovation and upgrading of the operating rooms at Surrey Memorial Hospital will implement new health care technologies for non-invasive surgery. This will result in more effective treatment and less suffering for the patient, and software to predict and prevent outbreaks.”
“Advances in medical technology contribute to a higher life expectancy. This helps our workplaces.The Surrey Board of Trade looks forward to promoting this campaign in an ongoing way until the financial goal is met.”
The event took place at Surrey’s Health and Technology District.
