Laparoscopic Surgical Tower

This tower is required for all laparoscopic surgeries, such as for hernia, gall bladder, colon, appendix, and gynecological.  More surgeries are conducted laparoscopically, in order to have smaller incisions, which leads to less pain, less complications, and quicker recoveries for patients.  The current tower can no longer be repaired, so replacement is necessary.  This tower will provide the best technology available today, so the surgeon has a high-definition camera and a large monitor to ensure a high visual field during surgery.  Also, videos & photos can be taken of procedures to be utilized for teaching purposes.  As of November 2021, the Drumheller Area Health Foundation has currently raised $100,000 or 62.5% of the required funds for the surgical tower, but the remaining $60,000 is still needed to make this purchase.  The quality of the Operating Room program at the Drumheller Health Centre is demonstrated by the Quality Endoscopy Program plaque the Drumheller Health Centre was awarded in June 2020 for its high satisfaction rate in the Provincial Endoscopy Patient Experience Survey.
