“We are pleased to be able to donate this land to the health authority,” president and CEO of TimberWest Paul McElligott said. “The area from Comox to Campbell River lies within the core of our timber operations. TimberWest is enthusiastic about this hospital as it will benefit our employees, contractors, suppliers and customers.”

Details concerning the hospital’s construction are still in progress, however, as Jac Kreut, chair of the Vancouver Island Health Authority Board noted, “The new hospital, which remains in the early planning stages, will be a great asset to the people of the north island. Our Board of Directors welcomes TimberWest’s generous offer and we are looking forward to working with them to finalize the details.”
