Smarter, Safer Medication Management

The Cowichan District Hospital Foundation is committed to supporting the best possible healthcare, right here in Cowichan, with world class equipment. This year, we are kindly asking you to consider helping us purchase two Automated Dispensing Cabinets (ADCs) for medications, valued at $320,000. ADCs are speciality locked cabinets that safely and efficiently store, track, and dispense medications to Nurses, based on verified Physician medication orders.

Wednesday, October 26 from 10am to 6pm, 89.7 Juice FM will be live on location at our office to help us fundraise for this medical equipment for Cowichan District Hospital.

Plus, thanks to a group of generous donors, every donation to the ADC campaign between now and the end of the day October 26, will be matched up to $100,000!


Automated Dispensing Cabinets can:
  • help reduce medication errors
  • improve inventory management and tracking
  • increase efficiency to give Nurses more time for care
  • integrate with Electronic Health Records and Pharmacy packaging equipment
ADCs will also help train and orient staff at Cowichan District Hospital on new technology and workflows, in preparation for Cowichan’s new hospital, where this crucial equipment will be transferred once it is complete.
