After a very successful 2013 Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Campaign no time was wasted by the Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary ordering two phlebotomy chairs for the regional hospital’s Ambulatory Care Unit and by East Kootenay Foundation for Health who ordered a broda chair for the 2nd and 3rd medical floors.

Although the team from Tim Hortons’ was unable to join CHCA and EKFH when the chairs arrived a very special holiday guest stopped in to share in the excitement.

Thank you to the Gareau family, their staff and the many loyal customers at the Tim Hortons’ Cranbrook locations for bringing valuable health care equipment to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.
