Thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary Fraternal Order of Eagles Nanaimo for their generous $500 donation for the ICU fundraising campaign to purchase 7 bedside patient monitors at NRGH. Their commitment to healthcare in our community is greatly appreciated!
After the passing of Marjorie Kamp, former manager of Dufferin Place Extended Care Facility, and shortly after, her son Jordan Kamp who worked in food services; the staff at Dufferin, Food Services, managers from South Island as well as executive leaders wanted to do something special to remember these two dedicated Island Health employees. They made personal contributions to purchase a Silk tree that has fluffy pink fan-like flowers, symbolizing the uniqueness of Marjorie and Jordan. In addition, 2 picnic tables will be placed in the area in front of Dufferin, where on June 14th, the tree was planted and dedicated to Marjorie and Jordan.
