|Bed replacement for Acropolis Manor and Prince Rupert |
Regional Hospital will be the project for 2021 for
the Prince Rupert Health Improvement Society
With their 2020 fundraising campaign a huge success thanks to the generosity of the residents, businesses and organizations of the Prince Rupert area, the North Coast Health Improvement Society has raised the bar a bit, with their 2021 plan putting some focus on the needs of Acropolis Manor and the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital.
In late January, the NCHIS put forward their initiative that will seek funding from the community towards replacement of over 60 beds at the two local health care facilities including the replacement of 35 for Acropolis Manor alone.
They've estimated that the cost will be in the area of 300,000 dollars and already Prince Rupert has started to step up, as it always does.
In their Social media feed, the Society hails the generosity of the ILWU and DP World in Prince Rupert, between the terminal and its employees and their 79,000 dollar donation, the 300k goal doesn't look so daunting.
As well, the Society has allocated 50,000 dollars of their own funding towards the project putting them close to the half way to their target right out of the gate.
That successful open to the campaign has already provided dividends, as local businesses and individuals begin to make donations large and small to push the initiative closer and closer to its goal.
The value of the Society's work in the community is immeasurable, with their 2020 project having provided for much needed upgrades to the Cancer Care Unit at Prince Rupert Regional hospital.
