The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation took a major step forward today in their campaign for a CT Scanner. North Peace Savings and Credit Union and their Social Responsibility Committee have donated 100 thousand dollars towards the purchase of at CT Scanner. This is the single largest donation the Hospital Foundation has recieved from a locally owned company. So far almost one third of the money need to purchase the CT Scanner has been raised within the community. In total over 400 thousand dollars has been raised with a goal of 1.3 million dollars. The Foundation hopes the Credit Union’s donation will cause other companies to think about making a donation to the CT Scanner Campaign. Currently 20 percent of the people that use the Hospital need a CT Scan and at the moment have to be moved to Dawson Creek. If you would like to make a donation call 250-262-5299.
