The KBRH Health Foundation is fundraising for a $1 million Emergency Department Campaign. Coinciding with construction of the new $19.05 million Emergency Department at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, the Foundation has committed to raising $1 million to purchase state of the art equipment to support patient care. The project’s financial partners include the Province of BC through Interior Health, the West Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital District and the KBRH Health Foundation. Ground breaking has occurred and completion is expected in 2020.
The KBRH Emergency sees over 16,000 patients annually, including the most critically ill and injured patients from across the region. The Emergency Department will triple in size and will address current space and service challenges, as well as accommodate projected patient care needs for years to come. Maintaining adequate service provision is of critical importance for our regional hospital, as KBRH is responsible for providing core services for our many stakeholders throughout the Kootenay Boundary, ranging from community members to industry partners.
In addition to the services currently offered, the expansion will include: a Trauma Room with 2 Treatment Bays, 6 Urgent Care Treatment Bays, 6 Streaming Examination Rooms & 3 Streaming Stations, an Airborne Isolation Room, a Women’s Health Procedural Examination Room, a Mental Health Quiet Consultation Examination Room, and a Minor Procedure Eye/Ear Nose & Throat Specialty Treatment Room.
With our Emergency Department Campaign, we have the ability to offer our major donors unique recognition opportunities. We invite you to contact the Foundation should you wish to make a general donation to the campaign and/or leave a legacy by purchasing equipment for a specific area. DONATE ONLINE HERE
