The Kitimat General Hospital Foundation received a Certificate of Incorporation from the BC Registrar of Companies, under the BC Society Act on February 14.

Chairman Corinne Scott said she was pleased with the Valentine’s gift as it will provide a means to raise money for health care services in the Kitimat region.

“Community members have voiced their concern with regards to the shortage of multi-level care beds, equipment, and staff requirements to ensure the ongoing success of the Kitimat General Hospital and Health Centre,” she said, adding this was  a pro-active step in addressing those concerns.

Scott said the Foundation will have the ability to increase and improve the provision of medical care to those who live in the Kitimat area through receiving, investing and administering bequests, endowments, trusts and other financial investments to fund the activities of the Kitimat General Hospital and Health Centre, Delta King Lodge, Kiwanis Village and other health care and special-needs housing facilities.

The first directors and members are Scott, directors Barbara Campbell, Mario Feldoff, Bill Garvin, Rob Goffinet, Armelle Kennedy and Doug Read, and members Phyllis Gregg and Phyllis Rooney.

Scott said the Foundation will be carried on without gain for its members, and any profits would be used in promoting the goals of the society.
