Giving Blooms is operated by the Hamilton Health Sciences Volunteer Association (HHSVA).  We are a non-profit organization that operates shops and services across the Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS) family of hospitals including gift shops, cafes, cafeterias, parking services and more.

Our mission is to continually support, enhance and advocate for HHS and its volunteers, on behalf of patient care.  Since 2012 we have donated over $63 million towards enhancing patient care at HHS through the donation of patient equipment, such as surgical devices, diagnostic tools and wheelchairs, and funding of patient care programs.

HHSVA Donates Cutting Edge Electrosurgical ERBE Machine at the Hamilton General Hospital 

With its small stature and nondescript appearance, it would be easy to underestimate the power of the new ERBE machine donated by the HHSVA to the General Surgery unit at the Hamilton General Hospital. “This is an essential piece of equipment used to cut and coagulate tissue, minimizing bleeding and allowing for precise procedures,” says Melanie Buitenhuis, Service Resource Nurse for the Hepatobiliary, Colorectal and General Surgery units. The ERBE is programmed to be used for many different procedures and tissue types. “The surgical team benefits from the ERBE because it is equipped with sophisticated programs. It detects resistance in the tissue and then delivers only the specific degree of energy required. The majority of surgical cases could not proceed without it.”
