The North Delta Lions Club recently donated $2,800 in support of Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. This funding will go towards a new shower chair for Delta Hospital’s busy 58-bed medical unit.

 

Delta Hospital’s medical unit provides medical care to patients with serious or sudden illness or injury, or immediately post-surgery.  In many instances, mobility may be a challenge for patients making daily activities like bathing difficult to do without proper support.  The design of the new shower chair is both comfortable and durable, with the latest features and adjustable options providing the best in patient comfort and safety. 

 

“We are so fortunate to have wonderful service clubs in our community like the North Delta Lions who are always finding ways to give back. This much-needed new shower chair will make a big difference for both patients and staff in the medical unit. We are grateful to the Lions for their ongoing support and for all that they do in our community,” says Angela Turner, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation.  

 

The North Delta Lions Club was founded in 1967 and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charitable causes as well as participating in many community projects.  To date, they have donated more than $31,000 to Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation all in support of priority equipment at Delta Hospital.
