Initiated by a number of concerned citizens, MATH, the Mission All Together for Healthcare Society was formed as a community group. The objectives of MATH are to work in partnership with a variety of organizations, including the Mission Memorial Hospital, Fraser Health, and others as opportunities arise. The purpose of the MATH society is to support a model of health care that serves the citizens of the City of Mission and its neighboring communities.
POCUS is a portable ultrasound device that was recently acquired for the Mission Memorial Hospital. This hand-held ultra-sound equipment will allow our physicians to readily monitor and assess changing patient conditions and the effectiveness of interventions. POCUS was made possible by the generous support of local businessman Ken Selvaraja.
Mr. Selvaraja and Judith Ray of MATH presented the new Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) device to Dr. Lily Edelson who will be providing mentoring support for the introduction and use of this new diagnostic technique at Mission Memorial Hospital.
