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 Broselow Cart is a medical tool chest on wheels, colour-coded to help doctors find and administer the most appropriately sized equipment or medication for children in emergency situations. The Foundation purchased one for the Powell River Hospital last year.
Your Foundation welcomed two new members this year -- chiropractor Jeremy Buhay and realtor Meaghan Westie. They join members Mike Chisholm (President), Rod Tysdal (Vice President), John Catcher (Treasurer), Richard Furness (Secretary), Bob Astrope, Ken Dickson, Dave Harper, Shirley Koleszar, Bill Maitland, Dal Matterson, Ken Needham, Michael Stewart, Ashok Varma, Karen Whyard, and Margaret Brittain, office clerk.
The Foundation funds equipment that improves the quality of patient care at the hospital. If you’d like to take part in this process, please contact Margaret at the Foundation Office, 604 485 3211, Ext. 4349, Wednesdays 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
