Drumheller MUST be Growing!

We have more babies born in our hospital than ever!  We need two monitors in order to support the needs of our Obstetrics department. Currently, the Drumheller Area Health Foundation is campaigning to raise $60,000 for two Maternal and Infant monitors for our Mothers in Labour.  

Be part of our future Drumheller neighbor’s lives and Help us to raise the money to purchase these vital tools!

The Drumheller Health Centre has recently been notified that the current fetal monitors are nearing the end of their anticipated lifespan. This equipment is used to monitor both the mother and baby during pregnancy, labour and delivery and is essential to provide the best of care for both.

Last year alone, over 235 babies were delivered at the Drumheller Health Centre and the numbers keep growing!  The added monitors would allow a monitor in each of the three Labour and Delivery rooms and give a real boost to the obstetrics program in Drumheller.  The system we are considering offers a simple, complete wireless monitoring solution for efficient, enhanced workflow for the staff members and a more comfortable birthing experience for the mother. Its compact, ergonomic design gives the mothers the freedom they desire and safety for the baby.  

Please help the Drumheller Area Health Foundation raise money for these much needed tools. You may donate on-line by going to and selecting Drumheller as the community you wish to contribute money to.  Your donation will be delivered to the Drumheller Area Health Foundation to use as you specify.  You may also drop by or mail a donation to our office at the Drumheller Health Centre or with any receptionist at the Health Centre.  A donation form may be found by clicking HERE, printing it and using it to specify your desires.  Your interest is greatly appreciated and inquiries are always welcome.  
Thank you for your support!

Please help us today and give our newest residents a safe and hearty welcome to the valley.
