“Have a Heart” Radiothon

The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation joins the SunFM crew for the 1 day “Have a Heart” Radiothon every February. Our wonderful community shows us how much heart they have in helping purchase a vital piece of equipment that directly benefits our children at the hospital. Every donation will help improve pediatric quality of care, treatment and pediatric intensive care.

On February 14, 2019, we broadcasted live on location at Safeway Fort St. John from 6 am to 6 pm, inviting residents and businesses to donate. The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation Equipment Campaign goal was to raise $45,000 to purchase 6 Alaris Syringe Pumps. Alaris Syringe Pumps help improve IV Medication Safety for all patients. For infants and pediatric infusions, where weight is a critical factor in drug and fluid dosages and protection, these pumps are essential. These pumps will help achieve the most accurate pediatric dosage possible. It takes a lot more to take care of children, they have specific needs and deserve the best technology. Funds will help physicians provide the best possible medical care for children in the Northeast. TOTAL FUNDS TBA.
