Vacuum-assisted wound therapy system
Grant Program: Donor Advised
Funded by: Ian and Rosemary Mottershead Fund
The Ian and Rosemary Mottershead Fund provided a grant to the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation for this beneficial system. Weekly, 5-8 patients benefit from this.
Overall, the acquisition and implementation of the vacuum-assisted wound therapy system at LGH have yielded positive outcomes and accomplishments, including accelerated wound healing, reduced infection rates, improved patient comfort and quality of life, cost-effective wound management, and enhanced collaboration and expertise among healthcare professionals. These achievements have significantly benefited our patients and strengthened our commitment to providing high-quality healthcare services.
Vacs are an essential item for our patients with complex wound healing – having portable machines can expedite their discharge to home and that is always a key priority when their wound is stable. The grant’s support has been invaluable in addressing some of our immediate patients’ needs as it relates to the necessary treatment of wounds.
