Revelstoke Health Foundation Surpasses Heli-Pad Goal

The Revelstoke District Health Foundation has now surpassed its fundraising goal for a heli-pad at Queen Victoria Hospital.

Vice Chair Steven Hui has details on a number of significant donations that came in over the past week "The Government of B.C came forward with a $50,000 donation, and then a couple of days later B.C Hydro came and gave us a $20,000 donation, and then the Regional Hospital District allocated a huge amount of money, I guess $180,000."

The exact total from the North Okanagan/Columbia Shuswap Regional Hospital District is $186,000.

Hui says that the Foundation was at about $380,000 in donations before the newest $250,000 came in last week, which means that they are now well past the original $465,000 goal.

He notes that it's now on Interior Health to decide how fast the project should move.

No plans have yet been announced in regards to how the additional funds will be managed.
