What We Do

Health Care

Through dedication and hard work we have provided the funds necessary to purchase many life saving and diagnostic pieces of equipment for our hospital and for the doctors and nursing staff who work there. We have supplied items for the Emergency Department, the Lab, the kitchen and the waiting room.

The Society has purchased beds and special mattresses, wheelchairs both ordinary and extraordinary, and comforts such as cushions for the patio chairs at Ridgewood Lodge.

Community

Community Services has received support in the form of a donation towards the purchase of the community bathtub at Vermilion court. We also support Community Services clients through an annual donation to Meals on Wheels.

We have donated to Ground Search and Rescue as well as providing substantial support to the Highway Extrication Society.

We regularly support the fund raising efforts of the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation.

Bursaries

Annually we designate $2000.00 to a graduating student or students who are furthering their education in the human health care field.
