- Update the medical gas system to meet current standards
- Provide a larger quiet room for families
- Add sprinklers to the inpatient unit and lobby
Many thanks to the residents of Kings Bay for donating and the drivers for collecting and returning them to the beer store and for donating the raised money to the Auxiliary. Also thank you for adding these pictures and info to our website. It is a great idea to inform our neighbourhood.
