Donations Help Raise Funds for Cardiology Equipment at Red Deer Regional Hospital

Three new Electrocardiogram (ECG) machines have been purchased for the Cardiology Unit.

Red Deer Regional Health Foundation (RDRHF) is pleased to announce the Cardiology unit at Red Deer Regional Hospital received three Electrocardiogram (ECG) machines with funds raised from earlier this year.

In February 2021, Canadian Pacific (CP) matched every donation, including a $20,000 gift from Ron and Donna Durham of Red Deer. In total, over $60,000 was raised and the ECG machines have since been purchased and are now in operation.

Scott Young, CP Trainmaster, stated, “We’re proud that this donation will support Red Deer Regional Hospital in their pursuit to provide the best care for Red Deer and area residents.” The Durhams are also big supporters of the hospital and the charitable work done by the Foundation. “This hospital is a vital part of our community,” said Donna. “We are very thankful that CP matched our donation and helped make this become a reality.”

“I am very grateful and excited to use these new pieces of equipment,” said Shobhika, a Lab Assistant who works in the Cardiology unit at Red Deer Regional Hospital. “These machines are used to diagnose many cardiac concerns and we really couldn’t help our patients without them.”

The Foundation wishes to thank all donors who contributed to the matching gift campaign. To stay up to date on causes you can support through the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation, visit

Donations to RDRHF provide funding for programs, services and medical equipment for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and other health care centres throughout Alberta Health Services Central Zone.
