Light up the Hospital campaign in full swing

Castlegar and District Hospital Foundation is looking for donations to renovate the ER medication room.

The Castlegar and District Hospital Foundation kicked off its annual Light Up the Hospital campaign Friday. This year the foundation is working towards supporting renovations to the medication room in the emergency department at the Castlegar Health Centre. A goal of $30,000 has been set and as of Monday they were over half way there with $18,886.

The Castlegar and District Hospital Auxiliary Society started the day with a donation of $15,000. “We are very happy to hear that it is going to be a great help and keeping them safe,” said Nettie Stupnikoff, treasure of the foundation. “It is great for the patients.”

Interior Health Kootenay Boundary manager of the Castlegar emergency department Suzanne McCombs added, “It’s great for the staff. It is good for their safety as well so we are excited about that.”

Donations to the hospital foundation can be made by calling 250-304-1209, directly on the foundation website castlegarfoundation.org or in person at the Castlegar Health Center.
