Light A Bulb campaign continues to shine

The campaign has reached $122,664 for equipment at Vernon Jubilee Hospital

Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Light  Bulb campaign is getting strong support.

The campaign has reached $122,664, or 49 per cent of its $250,000 goal.

“We are very thankful to have the support of many generous and community-minded organizations, businesses and individuals who want to help make health care better for North Okanagan residents,” said Kevin Arbuckle, campaign chairperson.

Light A Bulb is raising funds for high definition camera heads and control units for four operating rooms at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.  The new equipment will provide the surgical team at VJH with the tools to perform minimally invasive surgical and diagnostic procedures.

“The equipment will be used for general surgery, orthopedics, ears, nose and throat, and gynecology,” said Arbuckle.

To donate, go to vjhfoundation.org or call 250-558-1362.
