Trees of Hope 2019


The List

  • Portable Oxygen Machine. This allows members of the community to borrow the machine for appointments out of town, safely going home on new oxygen, and many other uses.
  • A Pediatric Scale/Cart for the Emergency Room.
  • Physio requests a ReTurn and Belts. Some patients are too weak to stand safely with staff to move from the bed to the chair. The advantage of the pivot turner is that patients get more activity compared to using a mechanical sit-to-stand lift.
  • All the bedding for the nursing and radiology sleep rooms. We want to make our staff comfortable when on call!
  • Smaller birthing items such as balls, stools, etc. are needed for the various sizes of women who come in.

Now accepting applications for a new board trustee

  • The Windy Slopes Foundation was established in 1996 under the Regional Health Authorities. The Foundation is a registered charitable organization dedicated to raising funds in support of vital health care needs at our Pincher Creek Health Centre. 
  • The board consists of up to 11 hard-working volunteer trustees of the Pincher Creek and surrounding area. We work closely with the Site Manager and AHS Foundation Relation officer. As stewards of donated funds, the volunteer board of directors ensures that all dollars raised in the community stays in the community and is spent wisely. This includes the purchase of equipment, facility enhancement and program funding. 
  • To date, the foundation has raised over 1.5 million dollars of life-saving medical equipment and health programs. This couldn't have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our volunteer board and the community support. We are responsible for the effective governance of the foundation. We are so proud of our accomplishments to date. We have purchased equipment and enhancements for almost every area of the Centre, such as Operating Room, Day Surgery, Acute care, ICU, Maternity, Lab and Home Care to name a few.
