Description: The goal of this project was to increase surgical services at St. John Hospital in Vanderhoof by purchasing arthroscopic surgical equipment and patient care monitoring systems. The applicant implemented a highly successful fundraising campaign to raise the majority of investment required for this project. This project brings economic benefit by increasing the number of operating room procedures possible per year, and by attracting business from outside the area. The project enhances the level of medical services to Vanderhoof, Endako, Fort Fraser, Fraser Lake, Ft. St. James, Nak'azdli, Tlazt'en, Stellat'en, Nadleh Whut'en, and Saik'uz.
