RBC Foundation $15,000 Starlite Gift for MRI

Cranbrook, BC…  EKFH is thrilled to announce the lighting of 3 large stars at top the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. The RBC Foundation has brought us one large step closer to a permanent MRI with a Starlite Gift of $15,000.

Christy Dobi, RBC Branch Manager for Cranbrook expresses, “At RBC we believe in the power of communities and the individuals who live in them.   We are thrilled to be able to make this contribution to the MRI to improve healthcare for all the communities throughout the East Kootenay.”

Health is a significant priority for RBC and they allocate about one-quarter of their annual donations budget to health and wellness organizations around the world that have a benefit to community, and have a direct impact on its employees and clients.

The RBC Foundation has been an amazing supporter of health care in the East Kootenay. Since 2003 the RBC Foundation has contributed over $195,000 towards improving health care for all residents of the East Kootenay.

“We are thrilled to have the continued support of the RBC Foundation to improve our local healthcare. Their amazing generosity for the MRI is truly inspirational. The MRI is the last piece to make the East Kootenay Regional Hospital a truly regional hospital and the RBC Foundation’s generosity has played a large role in bringing regional healthcare to the East Kootenay.” Cassandra Schwarz, Executive Director EKFH.
