This year’s event will help fund equipment and improvements for the Endoscopy Suite at the Cobequid Community Health Centre. This will help to maintain the growing needs of our expanding community. Specifically, we are funding a Six Scopes.
Below are some facts about the Cobequid Community Health Centre:
Cobequid Community Health Centre has the second busiest Emergency Department in the province of Nova Scotia even though we are only open from 7 am-12am.
Cobequid’s Emergency Department wait times remain relatively low. We have the advantage of starting fresh each morning with full bed availability.
Cobequid Community Health Centre has the fastest ambulance to bed time in the metro and daily ambulance volumes have doubled since last year.
Our Emergency Department serves nearly 39,000 patients where over 95% of patients are discharged home and less than 5% are transferred.
Through the generous support of the community the Cobequid Community Health Centre Foundation has funded over $1 million in priority medical equipment.
The Cobequid Foundation funds in full a significant amount of the medical equipment at the health centre.
