Kongsberg Gallium launches 2015 Employee Engagement Campaign

This year, Kongsberg Gallium employees launch their 7th consecutive employee engagement campaign and are rallying together to support the expansion of The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre

Every year more than 30,000 women rely on The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre for diagnostic testing — and every day many of these women face a difficult diagnosis. The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre is running out of room to meet the increasing and critical needs of the community we serve. In order to better serve the patients counting on us for timely, compassionate and comprehensive care we are establishing a larger, state-of-the-art Breast Health Centre at the General Campus of The Ottawa Hospital.

Their campaign kicks off on July 23rd with Tanya O'Brien who will speak to the group about her journey with The Ottawa Hospital Breast Health Centre. Their campaign will continue with plenty of opportunities for all staff to get involved - including a Wii tournament and a cross word challenge - along with an all-staff BBQ and silent auction in the fall as they wrap-up their campaign.

Thank you, to the entire Kongsberg Gallium team for your continued and valued support, enthusiasm and generosity. Your are making a direct impact on patient care and treatment for women here in Ottawa.

Kongsberg’s support since 2009:

2009

Raised funds to purchase a chemo chair, exam couch and crash cart, essential pieces equipment for a cancer treatment bay.

2010

Purchased a DNA spinner and microscope, two essential tools that allow researchers to examine cancer cells, so that they can develop new more powerful therapies.

2011

Researchers need to grow cells in the lab to test new treatments on them. The incubator Kongsberg Gallium purchased in 2011, provides a warm sterile environment for growing cells. The cells can then be used to investigate new approaches for preventing and diagnosing diseases.

2012

The team purchased a SimJunior Mannequin - a patient simulator used for hands-on training. The mannequin breathes, has a pulse and heart sounds, talk, and responds accurately to medications, fluids and chest compressions, and can recreate different patient care scenarios.

2013

Supported the STAR program and the ground breaking cancer research of Dr. Jean Simon Diallo.

2014

Raised funds to support Dr. John Bell’s ground-breaking cancer research with oncolytic viruses.
