Public invited to dual opening ceremonies at Penticton Regional Hospital

April 22, 2015 - 2:41 PM

PENTICTON - Donors and the public are invited to a pair of opening ceremonies at Penticton Regional Hospital this Friday from 2-4 p.m.

The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation raised $1.5 million in 2013 to update the Digital Imaging (X-ray) department at PRH. State-of-the-art digital radiography equipment was purchased to replace the outdated cassette equipment in the hospital’s three X-ray rooms and the portable machine used in the Emergency Department. The upgrade is now complete.

Hospital officials will lead tours of the Digital Imaging department and explain the new equipment. Cake and coffee will be available, with free parking in the PRH lot from 1-5 p.m.

Tours of the new six-bedroom residence for health care students and visiting locum physicians next to the PRH psychiatric unit will also take place.

The entire cost of the new residence (more than $500,000) was donated to the Medical Foundation from the estate of Lloyd and Lota Jobling of Penticton. It was placed on site in late February and is now ready for occupancy.
