Crowsnest Pass Health Foundation was established in 1996 and funded only one enhancement that year- a patient bed. From those humble beginnings, the Foundation has forged relationships with local businesses and individuals that have provided over $1 million in enhancements to services delivered at Crowsnest Pass Health Centre.
The Foundation (in partnership with the health region) was instrumental in bringing hemodialysis services to the community, funding much of the original equipment and furnishings for the unit. That support continues with televisions and a hand-held phone for dialysis patient use provided in 2014.
From the acute care unit, surgical suites and emergency, to continuing care and recreation therapy, as well as lab and imaging services, the Foundation gathers community support to ensure the finest equipment and technology is available for local use.
The Foundation continues striving to make possible “the best of health for everyone.
The foundation volunteer board of directors plans and implements fund raising events in an effort to raise awareness of local needs. They also act as stewards of donated funds, ensuring that all monies raised are spent wisely and for the benefit of health care services in Crowsnest Pass. All dollars raised in our community stay in our community.
