A general meeting of the board of directors for the Souris Health District Foundation was held at the office of David Kohut Ltd. on Tuesday March 12. Present were David Kohut, Blair Woods, Darryl Jackson and Lauren Somersall. General business was done as well as 2019 Funding Requests were received and reviewed for both the Hartney and Souris Medical facilities, and a motion was made to approve the following:
Souris Health Care Facility was approved $24,300
1. Summer Student - 4300
2. Gyne Stretcher - 9500
3. Night Stands - 4500
4. Re Decorate PCH - 2000
5. Ceiling Track lift - 4000
Hartney Health Care Facility was approved $16,644
1. Summer Student - 3000
2. Camera/Video – 13,644.39
The number one request from both Hartney and Souris is often the summer student; the board has heard many positive comments regarding them supporting the hiring of these students. The board must be careful as some donations have stipulations on them that they can only be used in either Hartney or Souris and for specific items such as medical equipment. The board only donates when they receive specific requests directly from the Hartney or the Souris facility, as they need to be on board with the projects or equipment supplied.
Family Donations and In Memorials were received for the Souris Health Facility so Name Plaques will be ordered to display at the Souris Hospital recognition wall. We thank the following families for thinking of the Souris Health District Foundation by either donating to the general fund or suggesting people donate to the foundation when they have experienced the loss of a loved one.
