Summerland Health Care Auxiliary has donated $6,000 for the renovation of a palliative room at Dr. Andrew Pavilion.

This room is provided for residents as they are in the final stages of their life so that family and friends can gather and stay close.

Katalin Simon, Nurse Manager for Dr. Andrew Pavilion, said that the Summerland Health Care Auxiliary’s generous donations are always based on their philosophy of helping to provide extra comfort and care for the residents.

“On behalf of the residents, their families and the staff, gratitude for this gift cannot be expressed enough to the Summerland Health Care Auxiliary.”

Janice Perrino, Executive Director of the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation, said, “We often think of them purchasing the large pieces of equipment but this project is special; it is all about patient comforts, when patients and their families need it the most.”
