Money going towards upgrades to Stettler Hospital emergency room

Stettler Festival of Lights committee raised $109,558 with the money going towards the Stettler Hospital.

Donations are still pouring in and the committee hopes to top $110,000.

“The generosity of this community is always overwhelming,” said Amy Roberts Chairperson of the Stettler Festival of Lights Committee. “We were able to surpass our goal of $85,000 for upgrades to the palliative care room, family room and comfort care room across the hall in the Stettler Health Care Centre. Now we can fund new equipment in the soon to be upgraded Emergency Room department. Because of this community’s support we have a viable hospital with an emergency department.”
