We are a registered charitable society which exists to encourage gifts, donations, bequests, endowment funds and property of any kind to support Shuswap Lake Health Care facilities. Our growing community of 36,000 people doubles each year during the summer months and the addition of the new Trauma Room X-ray increases the ER’s ability to provide quick access for all comers.. Excellence in health care is driven by dedicated staff and dedicated donors. Join us as we move forward with our current campaign to support new equipment purchases.
The purpose of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation is to accept, manage and disburse funds and properties to the benefit of Shuswap Health Services. This entity includes Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Bastion Place, (a residential care facility) and Community Care Services.
Funds are used to help meet the need for priority equipment and facilities that will enhance the care of patients and residents of these health care facilities and services. All investments and property are held in trust.
An office is located within the hospital just past the Main Entrance. Two support staff assist the volunteer Board of Directors in the day to day operations of the foundation. Costs of operation, including campaign costs, are generally met by interest earned on investments held by the foundation.
