Say, if you’ve got some free time this morning, why not stop by Queen Victoria Hospital to see the Hospital Helipad Project’s open house which starts at 10 am.
Project Co-Chairman Steven Hui will be there to explain the project, which seeks to build a modern helipad on the hospital’s grounds.
The project, which is sponsored by Revelstoke District Hospital Foundation, needs $465,000 to build it.
“As a mountain community that is internationally recognized as a major adventure capital in Canada, QVH is a busy hospital that must provide critical emergency care to members of our community, region and to the many visitors to our mountain community,” the District Hospital says on its website. “We are seeing increasing traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway, rail traffic through the mountain with CP Rail, and a substantial industry and forestry sector, a National Park, BC Hydro dams, and of course our 8,000 permanent residents.”
