Lumby's Kineshanko family completes pledge to Vernon Jubilee Hospital

Joanne Kineshanko

A Lumby family’s commitment to improving health care has been concluded.

Joanne Kineshanko has made the final donation towards a multi-year pledge for $25,000 for the Building A Tower Of Care campaign which recently came to a successful conclusion at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

“VJH has been a constant in the lives of my family members and from birth to death it has served the Kineshanko family well,” said Kineshanko, campaign co-chairperson.

Kineshanko’s four children and eight grandchildren were born at the local hospital.

“If we want the best health care available, individual donations are vital.”

Through the $25,000 donation, Kineshanko has left a legacy in the name of her late husband Terry.

“I have adopted and named the stress lab in the new cardio pulmonary clinic in his name,” she said.

While the Building A Tower of Care campaign is wrapped up and the $7 million goal was reached, Kineshanko is urging North Okanagan residents to continue to support health care needs and the hospital.


“Our new facility, the Polson Tower, is second to none,” she said.
