On March 21, 2017 the Courtenay Legion generously donated $10,000 to Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation to support the purchase of new and innovative equipment for Rehabilitation Services at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

This specialized physiotherapy and rehabilitation equipment will assist those in our community needing mobility assistance after accidents, surgeries and sudden medical trauma such as a stroke. It will also encourage independence as patients work on strength training and mobility. This equipment will transfer to the new Comox Valley Hospital this September.

Since 1998, the Courtenay Legion has donated $150,000 to support healthcare in the Comox Valley, especially in areas that support our community’s seniors.

Thank you!
