Welcome to our newest Benefactors Wilbert and Shirley Stewart. Wilbert and Shirley Stewart have lived in Sicamous almost 20 years and prior to that they resided in Salmon Arm where they farmed and raised their 2 children. Now they are the proud grandparents of three grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.
Shirley was a nurse and practiced at the old hospital in Salmon Arm as well as in Penticton, Vernon and Fort St.John. Shirley stated “it is good to see that hospital staff today have the same goals as we did when I was a nurse, to see people leaving the hospital, well and healthy again”. Wilbert enjoyed farming as well as carpentry. He mentioned “I was proud of being able to help build a number of buildings in Salmon Arm”.
Wilbert and Shirley noted that they have needed to use the Shuswap Lake General Hospital over the years, “sometimes in emergency situations” said Shirley, “we feel that it is now time to give back by making a donation to the CT Scan Upgrade”. Wilbert & Shirley Stewart’s donation will assist in bringing the CT Scan Upgrade to the hospital and the Shuswap Hospital Foundation is extremely grateful for their thoughtfulness and generosity. We applaud Wilbert & Shirley Stewart for their assistance in funding much needed equipment for the Shuswap Lake General Hospital and we congratulate them on becoming Benefactors of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation.
