Community members support ultrasound device

Following an article in a recent edition of the Virden Empire-Advance, generous community members and organizations have once again stepped up with donations to the Virden and District Health Auxiliary, earmarked for the Butterfly IQ ultrasound machine now in use at the Virden Health Centre and Virden Medical Clinic.

Dragon Slayer Oil Field Consulting Ltd. (Dave and Lynnette Jordan) made a $2000 donation, and the Maples Society, which has recently folded, donated the remainder of the organization’s money.

Donations were also received from Oak Lake Legion Ladies Auxiliary as well as from Maxine Chacun, Carol Wilson and Veda Robinson (Reston).

Because of their support, the Butterfly IQ ultrasound is now fully paid for and continues to be an important diagnostic tool for our health care facilities, allowing doctors to diagnose aortic aneurisms, track baby’s development in utero, detect ectopic pregnancies, spot gall stones and assist in starting difficult IVs.
