Is there a current campaign?
Tri-City Hospital Foundation committed to raising $1.5 million toward the purchase of a da Vinci® Si HD Robotic Surgical System, with the Medical Center sharing the rest of the cost. This breakthrough surgical technology allows surgeons to perform minimally invasive procedures using a 3D high definition camera head, fingertip controls, surgical dexterity and precision far greater than even the human hand. Tri-City Medical Center will be the only hospital in north San Diego County with the newest platform of this cutting edge technology. Among system benefits: significantly less pain, shorter hospital stays, less risk of infection and faster recovery. This new piece of equipment will particularly benefit Tri-City Medical Center’s Cancer, Cardiovascular and Women’s Health centers.
