Jaffray Lions donate to East Kootenay ICU

The Sand Creek Lions have made a donation of $500 to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and their ongoing ICU project.

The Sand Creek Lions have made a generous donation of $500 to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital (EKRH) and their ongoing Intensive Care Unit redevelopment project.

“The Sand Creek Lions are very fortunate to be able to donate to EKRH and the ICU campaign. Our members see the value of this project not just for residents here in Jaffray but for the entire East Kootenay,” said Lions President Stephen Thacker in a press release.

The current project at EKRH, a $20 million endeavour, will replace the current four-bed ICU unit to create a six-bed unit and a 8,470 sq. ft. addition on the northeast side of the existing hospital.

Construction on the new ICU unit began last year with a completion date set for the spring of 2016.
