 An excerpt from Doug Holliday (Board Chair) speech on February 5th.

"What changes is the evolution of health care services … What does not change is the commitment of the community … Our hospital and Wellness Centre are the heart of our community and the more we can do to improve these facilities, the more we strengthen grass roots health care in the community. Our mandate at the Foundation is to enable our health care professionals by providing the best facilities, the best tools, the best equipment and the best technology that we can afford. By doing this we feel that strengthen our position in terms of providing the best care that we can for our community. We have set a lofty goal for this campaign. Over the next two to three years our goal is to raise 5 million dollars.”
