Hospitals gala raises $427,000

A gala held to support the Victoria Hospitals Foundation raised enough to contribute a significant amount toward the purchase of 94 specialized vital signs monitors.

The monitors will be installed at the Royal Jubilee Hospital's new Patient Care Centre.

The Visions gala, held Nov. 19, raised $427,000, through the support of 280 guests and 25 community sponsorships.

Visions is a major component of the Victoria Hospitals Foundation's fall campaign, which this year supports the purchase of specialized vital signs monitors, at a cost of $595,000.
