The Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation recently received a $5,292.00 grant from the Keystone of Life Foundation, for the purchase of a bariatric stretcher for the Emergency Department of the Castlegar Health Centre.

Joan Conkin, Patient Care Coordinator at the CHC, notes that the new stretcher has a greater weight capacity and is 5 inches wider than the existing stretchers, making it an important acquisition for Emerg, improving both the safety and comfort of larger patients.

The Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation appreciates the proactive efforts of Glenn Akselson, a member of the local Rossland Chapter #4 of the Royal Arch Masons of B.C. & Yukon, and life-member of the Keystone of Life Foundation.

Special thanks to the Keystone of Life Foundation for supporting the Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation in their work for those in Castlegar and areas I & J.
