As the main referral centre and provider of 80% of all specialized services for Prince Edward Island, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is the heart of health care on PEI.
It is only through the support of generous donors that the QEH Foundation can fulfill its important mission of raising funds for medical equipment for our Island’s largest hospital. This continued support ensures our health care professionals can continue to provide the highest level of care possible for our friends and families here—at home—in PEI.
As with any hospital, medical equipment needs are great, and ongoing. Equipment reaches its end of life cycle and improvements in diagnosis and treatment require new technology. In 2016-17, medical equipment needs at the QEH total $3.75 million. Medical equipment reaches its end of life much sooner than in the past, and with advances in medical procedures and technologies, our needs continue to grow as we serve the entire Island through a number of provincial specialties here at the QEH.
