RBC makes big donation

RBC recently made a ten thousand dollar donation to the Sparwood Health Care Center.

In attendance for the $10

Over a year in the works, the Sparwood Health Care Center has just received a $10,000 donation from The Royal Bank, stemming from a partnership and a passion for community.  In the fall of 2011, Kim Leclerc from RBC Sparwood Branch contacted Terri Domin, CIHS Manager for the Elk Valley regarding the possibility of partnering to apply for the funding donation from The RBC Foundation. Through discussion it was decided that supporting primary health care services at the Sparwood  Health Centre’s medical clinic was the preference of RBC Sparwood to direct the funding   to best assist the community. With the help of Sparwood Health Centre staff, an application was submitted to the RBC Foundation with the hopes of better supporting patients with disabilities who are seeking care in the medical clinic. The RBC foundation accepted the application and generously made a donation of $10000.00  toward the purchase of a specialized examination table that mechanically raises and lowers as well as tilts the head of the stretcher.

 “All of the Interior Health and the Sparwood Health Centre staff are very excited to be receiving this new piece of equipment, as it will allow us to better  meet the needs of patients and clients. This donation from RBC, shows their support of the community and the local businesses in maintaining and sustaining health care in Sparwood,” says Domin.
