New specialized beds provide more than just comfort to ICU patients

When thinking of a patient in hospital and all the medical equipment that may be used to provide care, it’s not likely a hospital bed comes to mind. But at Guelph General Hospital, five new high-tech beds in the Bob Ireland Family Intensive Care Unit are valuable tools helping deliver high quality care.

You can help patients reach important life milestones.

Right now, the hospital is aiming to raise nearly $1 million to replace and upgrade their central cardiac monitoring system. This is the system doctors and nurses rely on to track the heart performance of their most critically ill patients.
