Once we hit our goal of raising $2.5 million, the following pieces of equipment will be purchased for use at the Janeway:

Air Transport System

When needed, the NICU’s transport team is ready to bring premature, sick and medically complex infants to the Janeway. A specialized Air Transport System works as a mobile ICU, so newborns are fully supported throughout the journey.

New Incubators

Designed to provide a safe and specially controlled environment, incubators with continual monitoring are vital in helping our smallest, most vulnerable premature babies and our ill full-term babies survive tough beginnings.

Upgraded Birthing Bed System

The birth of a baby can be one of life’s happiest moments, but it can sometimes be unpredictable. Advancements made in birthing bed technology help make the birthing experience safer for moms and attending staff.

Advanced Birthing Simulator

Birthing simulators mimic labour problems, high-risk delivery scenarios, and many emergencies that arise during birth. Handling these challenges in a simulation means gaining the ability to save more lives in the delivery room.

Advanced Neurosurgery
Navigation System

The intracranial (within the skull) navigation system (StealthStation S8) is used frequently in neurosurgery practice, allowing accurate placement of surgical instruments throughout a procedure. With the StealthStation S8, we can continue to provide the most up-to-date, gold-standard care to the children of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Advanced Neurosurgery Microscope

Neurosurgical microscopes are intended for the illumination and magnification of the surgical area and for the support of visualization in surgical procedures involving the brain and spinal cord.

Caring for Our Most Precious Cargo
