Donors and donations are the back-bone and lifeblood of the Powell River Hospital Foundation and all that it does to improve the quality of patient care at our hospital. Costly improvements like the CT Scan and up-to-date Ultrasound diagnostic equipment have underlined the importance of donations. Here, long time Foundation Director Dave Harper, left, and Chair Mike Chisholm, honour Robert Lacey, a constant and generous donor over the years, with a plaque recognizing his contributions. “I’ve lived in Powell River all my life,” says Robert. “Powell River’s been very good to me, and I take a lot of satisfaction in giving back, in the form of donations to the Hospital Foundation.”
Patients at Powell River General Hospital will soon be receiving their first big dividend from the community’s investment in the hospital’s original CT Scanner — a new, up-to-date model is expected to arrive in February, this one supplied by Vancouver Coastal Health.
Our hospital greets the New Year with a new director and new administrative assistant. Mėlie De Champlain (left) is Powell River Hospital’s new director. Teresa Shaw (above left) takes over as administrative assistant from Pat van Schaik (above right) who has retired.
The Foundation funds equipment and training.
