Join us in enhancing the quality of health care for the Kootenay Boundary region.

This year we are raising funds for the $750,000 Orthopedic Enhancement Project, which will purchase state of the art medical equipment for the Operating Rooms at KBRH, to be used by the Orthopedic Surgeons. The equipment purchased will allow the surgical team to continue their excellent work and introduce new services to ensure better care closer to home.

You can also donate to the department of your choice at KBRH, Columbia View, Poplar Ridge or Community Health.
