Ashley Bentley of the Hospital Foundation, says the Foundation set a goal of $200,000 for this Christmas season, and have already far exceeded their goal.

Bentley says, “it’s been an absolutely amazing holiday season,” and despite the fundraiser wrapping up in early December., that number will continue to grow for a bit longer as many of the donations come via post.

All the money from the month-long fundraiser will go towards a digital mammography machine, seven wireless fetal heart monitors, 55 vital machines and seven treatment chairs for the new dialysis centre in the new hospital. The total cost of the equipment is $1.2 million.

The new hospital is set to open in the summer of 2012.
