The Kiwanis Club of Oliver was in a generous mood yesterday when it donated $50,000 towards the emergency department upgrade at South Okanagan General Hospital.
Upgrades to SOGH include developing a new waiting and triage area, a separate public emergency department entrance, and the relocation of admitting and administration services.
Once complete, patients requiring emergency treatment will access the emergency room from a separate entrance, ensuring privacy.
The project will also include new exterior signage to improve public navigation to the emergency department.
The upgrades are slated to cost approximately $1 million.
