The West Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital District (WKBRHD) board met Wednesday (Nov. 21) in Castlegar at the rec centre. The meeting was the last one for WKBRHD board secretary Jim Gustafson, who has retired.

The board is comprised of 17 Directors from the Regional District of Central Kootenay and 13 directors from the Regional District of Kootenay-Boundary.

The main purpose of the WKBRHD is to provide funding for Hospital equipment and capital projects.

The Hospital District pays for 40% of the cost of approved projects while the remaining 60% share is funded by the Provincial Government or through donations provided by local Hospital Foundations.

Projects and priorities are proposed each year by the Interior Health Authority, with a list developed in consultation between the IHA and WKBRHD.
