Pender Health Centre update

Filed under: News,Recreation, Health and Fitness,Services — Jocko @ 7:33 pm

The estimated total cost of the expansion and renovation of the Health Centre is $1,300,000. To date over $1,040,000. has been raised thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the community and with a generous grant from the CRD. We still require an additional $260,000 to complete the expansion and renovation. We are making every effort to raise these additional funds in the next 3 to 4 months through many sources including corporations, foundations, government sources, and by asking that you, the residents of Pender, show your continued support with a year-end, tax deductible donation to the Pender Islands Health Care Society Building Fund. Please mail or drop-off your contribution to:

The Pender Island Health Centre Society – Building Fund, 5715 Canal Rd., Pender Island, BC V0N 2M1 250 629-3326

And please continue to designate your Tru-Value purchases to the Health Centre Building Fund (#32). We raise almost $1,000. per month through this initiative. Thanks Tru-Value. For more information on how to make a contribution please call Robert Dill at 250 629-3326.

We also offer our heartfelt thanks to the Pender Island Community Services Society (Nu-to-You) who have offered the Health Society an interest free loan of up to $80,000. to help ensure that we can continue with the expansion, while additional funds are being raised.

We are pleased to announce that we will be welcoming a new physician for the Penders! Dr. Michael Thompson will be moving to Pender with his wife Sandra and will begin practicing at the clinic on January 14, 2008. Michael has an extensive background in family and rural medicine and will be a wonderful addition to our team.
