New Health Centre Opens!

Filed under: News,Services — Jocko @ 4:00 pm

The expanded Health Centre is now open to better serve the community!

The Pender Island Health Care Society cordially invites you to attend the opening of the new Health Centre on Friday October 3, 2008  from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.  The Pender Island Health Centre is located at 5715 Canal Road on North Pender.  The official ceremony begins at 4:15 pm with an Open House and refreshments from 4:45 – 6:00 pm.

Financial Information:

To August 31, 2008, $1,388,511 has been raised for the new addition and renovation of the existing Health Centre!

Of the total raised, $648,615 was donated through the generous support of the Pender community.  The Capital Regional District (CRD) contributed $597,396, and the Vancouver Island Health Authority provided $142,500.  An additional $45,000 was received from individuals and several community events specifically for the purchase of equipment and furnishings.

However, $12,562 is still required to meet final construction expenses and an additional $20,000 is needed to pave the new access road to the Emergency Treatment Room.  So… your on-going support is needed and appreciated!  To make a contribution please call Muriel Jones at 250-629-9936.  Contributions can take the form of publicly traded stocks, life insurance, “in memory” or “in honour” gifts, or even monthly donations.  This is a registered charity and a tax receipt will be issued for all donations over $10.
