Europro Vertical Climb 2018
January 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:15 pm
The annual Europro Vertical Climb (formerly the Dream Climb) supporting the Windsor/Essex Hospital Foundation takes place at the One Riverside Drive West building (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Canada offices) on Sunday, January 21, 2018.
The Windsor/Essex Hospital Foundation invites the Windsor-Essex community to take part in a repetitive walk or run of the stairwell (13 floors) of the One Riverside Drive West building (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Canada offices).
Europro Vertical Climb is a fundraiser supporting the Neurosciences Program at Windsor Regional Hospital. The Neurosciences program at WRH is operated through the Department of Neurosciences which is made up of the subsections of Neurology and Neurosurgery.
The neurologists within the Neurology subsection run the Stroke service and the Urgent Neurology clinic. They also provide consultation for local Windsor-Essex residents and from across the Erie St. Clair Local Integrated Health Network (LHIN).
The Neurosurgeons provide 24/7/365 complex spine care for trauma, cancer and degenerative disease. They are part of the Level 1 trauma service and routinely treat patients with acquired brain injuries. Of all trauma cases which are brought to the WRH-Ouellette campus, 50% involve brain injury. They also care for brain tumour, stroke patients. In collaboration with the Department of Diagnostic Imaging and the Intensive Care Unit at the Ouellette Campus, they provide state-of-the-art neurointerventional (coiling) care of patients with intracranial aneurysms.
Patients with spinal cord or brain injuries, and stroke require physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT) and speech therapy during their acute care hospital stay. Afterwards, some continue with those treatments as inpatients at the Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare Rehabilitation Centre.
There is always a need for equipment to help maintain state-of-the-art care of patients on the combined Neurology/Neurosurgery ward, the associated acute care rehab area (PT, OT), and the inpatient rehab centre.
