Kootenay East MLA

1. Health Minister Terry Lake (pictured above, right) and Bill Bennett announced a new MRI for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital to replace the travelling MRI that serves the EKRH only one week per month.

2. Over the past 15 years, the province has invested over $60 million to strengthen regional health services, including new ICU, new ER, new Diagnostics Centre, new Ambulatory Care Centre, new electrical infrastructure, new Admitting Centre.

3. In 2000, MacLean’s Magazine featured our regional hospital as an example of bad rural healthcare. Today, EKRH is a model of excellence in rural healthcare in B.C. and across Canada; not perfect but vastly improved.
