Light Up 2014 at the Health Centre

BC Hydro Employees' Community Services Fund's generosity provides new equipment.

Press Release

The Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation is moving forward in providing Health Care equipment to the Castlegar & District Community Health Centre!

The Foundation is very grateful and fortunate to have received a generous donation from HYDRECS as part of the final closing process of the BC Hydro Employees’ Community Services Fund.

Recent purchases by the Foundation include a Hematology Blood Analyzer for the Lab and a Second Vac Therapy Unit. These two items are in use at the Castlegar Health Centre.

Thank you to the BC Hydro Employees’ Community Services Fund for your generosity for enabling the Foundation to provide equipment which our community needs!

Please join us during Light Up 2014 on Friday, December 5, 2014 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Castlegar Health Centre as we fund raise to bridge the gap for the Second Vac Therapy Unit, software for the EEG machine at the Neurodiagnostics Department and a Blood Draw Chair for the Lab.

Our goal is to raise ten thousand dollars. Any additional funds raised will be used in the areas of greatest need at the Castlegar Health Centre or at Talarico Place. Please come and join us. EZ Rock will be on site, The Castlegar News will be paying a visit, and refreshments will be shared. Hope to see you there!
