What Are We Supporting?

The staff at the Oilfields General Hospital have the responsibility of caring for members of our community at their most vulnerable moments. While doing so they strive to maintain patient’s dignity, privacy and sense of family.

The Hospital was built in 1984 with an admirable purpose, but unfortunately an institutional design. The Hospital’s main tub room was designed in that institutional feel. We believe that refurbishing this area in order to make it a more peaceful, calming and warmer area where we can provide care to our patients in a more home like environment. Many of us take for granted the coziness of our bathrooms in our homes, and we would like to provide patients with more of that experience in the Hospital.

The Tub Room refurbishment will include a ‘state-of-the-art’ bathtub with a stretcher lift to lift bed ridden patients in and out of the tub and full new bathroom suite. We envision the space having peaceful calming music from a sound system, fireplace to warm the room, blanket warmers for nice warm blankets when getting out of the tub and natural lighting with large luminous virtual windows. As well, in order to personalize the tub room we want to build an area where residents can leave their personal grooming supplies.

Our vision is to create a personal care area that can be compared to those within the most beautiful care centres in Canada. The current budget for this upgrade is $100,000. Your support of this event helps us to transition this space from an institutional room to a space that provides some of the comforts of home.
