Health Care Auxiliary raises $25,000 for new CT Scanner

The Ladysmith Health Care Auxiliary continues to contribute to the health and wellness of their community.

The Ladysmith Health Care Auxiliary continues to contribute to the health and wellness of their community.

In November the group donated $25,000 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation’s campaign to raise $1 million to purchase one of two new CT Scanners for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH).

The new Scanners will dramatically decrease the amount of time it takes to scan a patient and the exposure to the radiation older machines create.

Through sales at the Auxiliary Thrift Store, the group has been diligent in supporting local healthcare. Since 1997 they have given almost $335,000 to NRGH, reaching almost every area of the hospital.

The Ladysmith Health Care Auxiliary Thrift Store is located at 910 1st Ave. Phone number is 250-245-5225. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
