BROCKVILLE – The Brockville General Hospital has received new equipment to help mothers through the delivery process.

The tools – which include ultrasounds, oximeters and sleeper chairs – were bought with money raised through the Maternal Child Golf Tournament last year.

The Maternal Child Unit at BGH recently received the new equipment.

The next golf tournament is being held Aug. 13 at the Prescott Golf Club.
