Leading-edge care requires leading-edge equipment. To stay at the forefront of newborn critical care, BMO Financial Group is supporting the latest innovations and advanced equipment technology at BC Women's Newborn ICU.

BMO Financial Group has built its success on providing Canadians with the financial tools they need to build a healthy financial future. Now, they are providing this same support to BC Women’s Hospital to ensure a healthy future for women and newborns. Thank you, BMO, for supporting the purchase of urgently needed equipment, including a new brainZmonitor that tracks a baby’s risk of seizures and allows doctors to intervene before it happens.

"When our group visited BC Women's NICU, all we wanted to do was just hold the babies. It’s so hard seeing these sick, tiny newborns struggling, but it’s also so inspiring to be there to see everything that’s involved in their care. When we support the purchase of specialized technology for BC Women's Newborn ICU, we know we’re putting it in the right hands." Brenda Pearce, Branch Manager, False Creek
