Callahan Property Group (CPG) has furthered their commitment to supporting local health care with a gift of $10,000 dedicated to the advancement of stroke care for patients and families in the southern interior region of B.C.
Last year, there were over 1,500 cases of stroke in the Interior Health region. While advancements in acute care, treatment and rehabilitation for stroke patients have been made in recent years, the grim reality of stroke is sobering; it is still the leading cause of long-term disability in adults and regrettably, the third leading cause of death in B.C. Every year the numbers are growing.
The gift from CPG will support the KGH Foundation’s partnership with the Interior Health Authority to fund significant advancements in regional stroke care.
“We are humbly grateful for the long-standing support of CPG,” says Mischa Mueller, Director of Philanthropy for the KGH Foundation. “Their loyalty to supporting excellence in health care in our community is incredibly important to the future of care in the southern interior.”
Since 1978, the KGH Foundation has worked with a generous community to raise funds to support world-class healthcare close to home for a rapidly expanding and diverse population in the interior of B.C. Today, the KGH Foundation is the lead fundraising organization for Kelowna General Hospital and its associated facilities, JoeAnna’s House and Central Okanagan Hospice House.
