The Ladysmith Health Care Auxiliary continues to contribute to the health and wellness of their community. In October the group donated $25,000 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation’s Christmas Campaign to help purchase one of two new CT Scanners for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). The new Scanners will dramatically decrease the amount of time it takes to scan a patient and have reduced radiation exposure.

“This organization is excellent”, said Foundation CEO Janice Perrino, “What a wonderful group for supporting healthcare initiatives at our hospital and our communities”.

Through sales at the Auxiliary Thrift Store, the group has been diligent in supporting local healthcare. Since 1997 they have given over $330,000 to the Foundation in support of NRGH, reaching almost every area of the hospital.
