Every year the QEH Annual Friends for Life Campaign focuses on raising funds to purchase priority medical equipment to assist the QEH hospital family in providing the best health care possible. Support from the community enables us to purchase life-saving, up-to-date medical equipment and technology to care for all Islanders in times of need. The campaign was officially on November 7, 2o19! For full details, visit us here.

Essentially 100% of on-going medical equipment needs are funded by donations. Gifts of all sizes make a huge impact on patients of the QEH, their families, friends and communities. Please give today, and join an inspired community invested in health care in Prince Edward Island. 

This year, a top campaign priority is a new $1.5 million CT Simulator for radiation treatment planning.

With images from the CT Simulator:

  • The optimal position for the patient’s body during each treatment is determined, for maximum radiation effectiveness
  • Radiation therapists coordinate markings, commonly referred to as “tattoos”, to the treatment area, to ensure the patient’s body position is replicated for each treatment
  • The reliability of radiation dose is administered is increased, and the risk of damaging healthy tissue is decreased.
