South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation

The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation is dedicated to excellence in supporting the delivery of health services in our region.

Our Impact Why We Exist

The SOS Medical Foundation is dedicated to preserving the quality of health care delivery in the South Okanagan-Similkameen. Through donations from numerous individuals, businesses and organizations we raise funds needed for crucial care medical equipment, staff education and other special patient comfort programs.

Our Story What We Do

The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation has launched a $20-million campaign to provide the medical equipment for the new $325-million Patient Care Tower at Penticton Regional Hospital. Construction will start in the spring of 2016 and be completed by late 2019.

Our Programs How We Do It

Fundraising efforts are a community-wide initiative. In addition to support from individual donors, we gain incredible financial assistance from hospital and health care auxiliaries, service clubs and other organizations throughout the South Okanagan-Similkameen through their thrift shops and various fundraising events.

What You Can Do

There are many ways to donate to the PRH Patient Care Tower campaign.  Hold a fundraising event, make your own direct donation,  leave something in your estate. Call the Foundation office at 250-492-9027 for more information.
