Hamilton General Burn Unit Fundraiser

Hamilton General Burn Unit Fundraiser

The Hamilton General Hospital's Burn Unit is one of two in Ontario.  Burns are one of the most devastating forms of trauma.  It is essential for patients with serious burns to have immediate and specialized, expert care in order to minimize the severity of injury.
  
A new shower/hydrotherapy room will be a valuable addition to the Burn Unit and ensure the Burn Unit continues to offer the best possible burn care to all burn patients in a more accessible and comfortable environment than is the current case.   The Burn Unit shower system is estimated to cost $75,000. 

Hydrotherapy  treatments  by showering or bathing offer many benefits to facilitate burn wound healing.  Cleaning the burn wound surface of debris, decreasing the number of microorganisms on the skin, facilitating physical therapy and comfort, enhancing psychological well-being of the patient ~ all these are benefits of hydrotherapy.

The employees of Effort Trust have rallied around this great cause and have raised over $3,500 towards this great cause.  Thank you to DG for all the hard work and effort that you have put towards this initiative and to all of the Effort Trust employees for their support!  If you are able to, please CLICK HERE to make a personal donation.
