Community support is strong for health care.
The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Light A Bulb campaign has currently raised $183,590 towards its $200,000 goal.
This year’s campaign will go towards equipment for hip and knee surgery.
“Adding two more surgical sets to the surgical rotation will mean that surgeries won’t be delayed by the lengthy sterilization process, resulting in an increased number of surgeries performed every day at VJH,” said Marg Bailey, campaign chairperson.
“This is how wait times will be decreased for residents of the North Okanagan.”
To donate to the campaign, go to vjhfoundation.org or phone 250-558-1362.
