The Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation is governed by a group of dedicated volunteers whose purpose is to raise funds for the priority medical equipment needs of our community hospital. The Board of Directors consists of 13 directors who each serve a 3-year term.
Our directors bring to the Board a variety of backgrounds offering their unique skills and talents to ensure the Foundation’s success.
The Foundation Board is a working Board elected by its members. Directors and members serve on various committees such as the Events Committee, Community Relations Committee, Governance Committee, or the Finance Committee.
All directors and members contribute their time and effort without any payment or benefit other than the satisfaction of contributing to the community.

Central Monitoring for Moms and Babies
Your donation to this year’s Light Up the Hospital! campaign will support the purchase of monitoring equipment for the busiest Maternity Ward in the West Kootenays. The new state of the art Central Monitoring System will provide medical staff with instant access to the patient’s vital signs, allowing them to make decisions to provide the highest level of care. Central monitors aid in timely communication about a patient’s condition, and assist in readiness of the maternity team when sudden changes are displayed. The Central Monitor displays live data from the External Fetal Monitor which measures the mother’s contractions and the baby’s heartbeat, alerting the medical staff of possible complications, ensuring the best care for mother and baby. A new Nursery Monitor will watch over our newborns through the Central Monitor, allowing staff to keep an eye on them at all times.
Help us monitor our region’s smallest patients with your donation to purchase a Central Monitor, Nursery Monitor and External Fetal Monitor Display for Kootenay Lake Hospital.
