South Cariboo Health Foundation We are here for you!
Celebrating 10 Years!
In 2012 the South Cariboo Health Foundation celebrated 10 years of supporting the delivery of quality health care in the 100 Mile House region. The guiding principle is to ensure that any and all funds raised or donated in the South Cariboo be used for equipment purchases, health care projects or facilities in the local area. Since incorporation in 2002, approximately $1.5 million has been dispersed throughout the local health care services. Major projects include the purchase of a community bus used primarily to transport seniors to adult day service programs at Fischer Place.
A major renovation of the local hospital, including the emergency room, laboratory and entrance, began in 2005 and was completed in 2011. The Foundation was also involved in the expansion of Facilities at Fischer Place in 2010. Many smaller purchases including stretchers, pressure reducing mattresses as well as sophisticated diagnosis equipment such as the new ‘Autoclave’ (instrument sterilizer). All these purchases were made in consultation with local administration, nurses and doctors to help identify their needs.
There have been a great number of people and organizations who helped with these success stories and we look forward to another 10 years of support, so that we can maintain our current facilities in our local community with state of the art equipment and well trained staff.
Our goal is to support and provide help to our local health facilities as well as other community health projects and to ensure that equipment and resources are available to meet the needs of patients.
