Jewels on Ninth recognizes ICU Team with $2,000 Gift

Cranbrook, BC…    The East Kootenay Regional Hospital ICU team is getting excited about the department’s move to the new 6-bed unit in the spring of 2016.   This new addition to the regional hospital replaces the current four-bed unit and will also include two new, high acuity beds.

The ICU is traditionally known as the department that treats the sickest of the sick, including trauma cases, cardiac & stroke care and multi-system failure.  The East Kootenay Regional Hospital ICU is supported by four specialized physicians (internists) and a team of nine specially trained nurses.

This week EKFH received a very special gift of $2,000 that recognizes the contribution, commitment and work of this specialized team.

Brian and Heather Masich of Jewels on Ninth made the gift.   “Our daughter Victoria is part of the ICU team and we personally wanted to let her and the others know how much we appreciate their dedication and service to others.   We are honoured to show our support by making a donation to help equip the new unit,” says Brian.

The fundraising drive to raise $1,000,000 to fully equip the only ICU in the East Kootenay continues; donations can be made on-line through www.ekfh.ca.
