The St. Joseph’s General Hospital Foundation is actively searching for new board members.

The new board will will lead the organization through its evolution of providing health-care equipment, education and environmental needs not only to St Joseph’s General Hospital but to the new Comox Valley Hospital and other health-care providers in our Valley.

Foundation board president Patti Fletcher says, “It is really rewarding to be part of the hospital foundation. We are guided by staff and physicians, as we work on supporting their needs and services so that our own family, friends and neighbours can be assured of the best healthcare possible in time of need.

“Our future role will be significantly expanded to support not only St. Joseph’s but the new Comox Valley Hospital and other health-care providers in the Valley. This makes for an exciting adventure and opportunity.”
