More generous community support to announce today thanks to a wonderful donation of $29,000 from the Gander Lions Club.

This machine, which is used on a daily basis, measures the refractive error in a patient’s eyes. It is also used to evaluate the shape of the cornea to determine astigmatism levels. The Gander Lions Club have been tremendous supporters of our local hospital and have contributed greatly towards health care in our region.
