Bot Construction Proudly Supports New Oakville Hospital With $100,000 Gift

Posted: June 19, 2012

OAKVILLE (June 15, 2012) – With its belief in helping organizations that help others, Bot Construction Group will donate $100,000 to the new Oakville Hospital.

“We are proud to make this contribution to the Oakville Hospital Foundation and to support this vitally important community project,” said Roy Bot, president of Bot Construction Group. “Few things matter more than our health and the quality of our health care.  We are fortunate to know that the expanded facilities and services of the new hospital will be in place to serve the wellbeing of the people and families of our communities for years to come.”
In recognition of their generosity, their gift will be recognized through the naming of the Cognitive Assessment & Neurology Treatment Room in the new Oakville Hospital.

The Cognitive Assessment and Neurology Treatment rooms will be new dedicated rooms that will be located in the Outpatient Rehab Department at the new Oakville Hospital. These rooms will provide the space needed to assess the impact of patients’ neurological limitations on their day to day functioning. Both these rooms are an asset to the hospital as well as to our community as the services currently available to meet the needs of patients with neurological impairments in the community is scarce.

The Cognitive Assessment Room will enable occupational therapists to conduct one-on-one cognitive assessments and retraining in an area away from visual and auditory distractions. The focus will be on functional assessments, education, retraining and connecting patients with the available community support and services. Patients typically need this service due to Stroke, early signs of dementia, MS, general aging, head injuries, and Parkinson’s.

The Neurology Treatment Room will provide a dedicated space for one-on-one assessment and rehabilitation of patients, by physiotherapists, with neurological impairments (e.g. Stroke, Parkinson’s disease). The room will ensure that patients receive the necessary privacy during their individual therapy sessions. The room will enable patients to improve their muscle strength, balance and functional mobility.

The new Oakville Hospital is reaching new heights with six soaring cranes currently on site to construct the new facility.
