Ayotte, Dr. Brian & Dr. Gail
Dr Brian Ayotte and his spouse Dr Gail Ayotte arrived in Salmon Arm in 1980, having come here with their young family from Winnipeg. Brian had been practicing and teaching internal medicine at the St Boniface Hospital. Gail was completing a residency in Nephrology. Brian set up practice as the first Internal Medicine Specialist in the community. Dr Gail opted to look after family rather than establishing a practice here. Over the years Gail’s skills were put to great use in caring for geriatric patients as they moved through the medical and care systems in the community. Serving on the Medical Staff at the hospital as a solo practitioner with 24 hour a day 365 day a year responsibility prompted Brian to work towards recruitment of other specialists in his and other specialties to serve the community. His efforts were rewarded and the community benefits to this day. With a flair for administrative functions Brian became the Chief of Staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital. He served on many inter-hospital committees to improve the delivery of health services across the whole region. After the establishment of Regional Authorities to bring governance to hospitals Brian served as Chief of Staff for the North Okanagan Region. Brian and Gail seemed to want a touch of the country life. They established themselves upon arrival in Salmon Arm on what might be described as a ‘hobby ranch’ and became quite adept at raising sheep. Gail became quite an expert at carding and spinning wool. With her group she competed with success in competitions as far away as Edmonton. As retirement grew nearer for the Ayottes they decided to leave the ranch and built themselves a retirement home up near the ski hill. Again showing the pioneer spirit, their home built of log is off line to hydro and telephone. They have made it a real showpiece.

The Ayottes are recognized a connoisseurs of good wine and are accomplished wine maker Once retired, Brian, wanting to still be involved, has been teaching at the Medical School at UBC Okanagan in Kelowna. He also serves on the Board of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation and had two years as President of this group. Brian served for many years on the Heart and Stroke Foundation both provincially and Nationally. He was President of the provincial body for two years. Though Brian claims to be retiring from this group it seems that his talents are so much in demand that he is continuously called back to participate or lead committees in that group.

Brian and Gail’s contribution to this community has been outstanding. Their support of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation has been generous and we are happy to recognize them as “Partners’ of the Foundation.

Dr Cedric Low Salmon Arm, BC Canada










Dr. Cedric Low Memorial Tribute.  What an indescribable loss when Cedric passed away on August 18, 2014, after a courageous battle with cancer.  Cedric was a remarkable man who reached many people throughout his life, as a son, sibling, husband, father, uncle, dentist, colleague and friend. His passion for living was evident in his dedication to his family, his dental practice and to life itself.  Cedric is loved and will be missed forever by his wife Pam, his son and daughter-in-law Jonathan and Sarb, his son Christopher, his daughter Rachel as well as his sisters Dawn and Wendy, and brothers, Roderick and Andrew. Cedric’s extended family and friends will also miss this exceptional man. Cedric will always be remembered for being a beautiful soul with a big heart, a magical smile and a wonderful sense of humour. One of his favourite songs was Harvest Moon by Neil Young. Whenever you see the moon, think of Cedric and feel his radiance which lit the lives of many.

Stewart, Wilbert & Shirley
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 to fund much needed equipment for the Shuswap Lake General Hospital and we congratulate them on becoming Benefactors of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation.
