A Message from the Acute Area Director, East Kootenay

Submitted by EKFH on 27-09-2011

At Interior Health our vision is “To set new standards of excellence in the delivery of health services in the Province of British Columbia”. To do this we are focused on providing high quality healthcare services that are timely, caring, and efficient. With this in mind, it is our great pleasure to support the East Kootenay Foundation for Health in their campaign to raise $1 million dollars for the purchase of a Stereotactic Digital Mammography Unit for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.

This new technology will significantly improve the diagnostic capabilities at East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Stereo Tactic Digital Mammography improves the early detection of breast cancer and enhances a physician’s ability to provide timely access to treatment when required. For patients this means detecting a possible cancer earlier and getting the treatments they need sooner.

On behalf of Interior Health, I would like to thank everyone who has given or who is considering making a gift to the East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s Digital Mammography campaign “A Clear View”. It is with the help of generous donors that the East Kootenay Regional Hospital is able to provide the highest quality of healthcare.

Your generosity is much appreciated,

Jason Giesbrecht

Acute Area Director, East Kootenay
