WHAT THE CHAMPIONS HAVE ACCOMPLISHED
Since 2020, the YGK Healthcare Champions have raised over $220,000 to purchase Vcreate technology for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Kingston General Hospital site.
What is Vcreate?
A secure video technology that helps patients, families and clinical teams stay connected through their care journey.
“We feel that this tool will enhance the partnerships between the NICU team and the families that we care for. It is a platform through which we can record and share content in the care environment and share with families in a way that keeps them connected to their baby even when they are not at the bedside.”
- Damiano Loricchio, Program Operational Director, Women and Children’s Programs, at KHSC.
The YGK Healthcare Champions monthly membership is $20 (a one-year commitment) and it will give you access to three networking and educational events.
