EXCEPTIONAL COMMUNITY | OUTSTANDING CARE
Eagle Ridge Hospital gave my family an extra 8 ½ years with the most amazing man – my Dad, Bruce Kehler. When Dad suffered a heart attack at Eagle Ridge Hospital in November 2008, the doctors and nurses did what they were supposed to do; they focussed on saving his life and for this, I am forever thankful.
Eagle Ridge Hospital saved the life of the man that was always just a phone call away, the man who was always my rock, the man who was simply the best. He was my mentor, my dad and my best friend. With his new lease on life continued to do what he loved to do most, helping others, just as he always had.
Upon his passing in 2017 my life was changed forever. I knew immediately that I wanted to do something that would make my family proud; something that would make Dad proud, something big.
With that in mind, I decided, together with my family, to make a gift in memory of Dad and to honour the doctors and nurses who gave me so many extra years with him. I hope that every time they walk into Bruce Kehler Cardiology at Eagle Ridge Hospital, they remember my thanks and think of my dad who gave everything he had to those who needed it more.
The amazing team of cardiologists, including department lead, Dr. Cameron Dehoney, are seeing an increasing number of patients each year. With demand growing, wait-times are currently six weeks for cardiac echo ultrasound tests. That means patients experiencing symptoms of shortness of breath or chest pain can wait six weeks for diagnosis. The new Cardiac Imaging Lab will be outfitted with three state-of-the-art cardiac echo machines that will reduce wait-times by 50% – from six weeks to three, providing for earlier diagnosis.
Please join me in supporting the new Cardiac Imaging Lab at Eagle Ridge Hospital by making a gift today – your support will help Dr. Dehoney and his team deliver the best in health care to our exceptional community.
