Jason Wubs, President and Co-CEO and Steve Sache, Senior Vice President, Retail Operations of Westland Insurance present cheque to Jim Bindon, Director, Development for Peace Arch Hospital & Community Health Foundation.
Westland Insurance made an extraordinary gift to Peace Arch Hospital last week. The donation of $500,000 will go towards pediatric treatment services in the new emergency department which is scheduled to open in early 2018.
“We are committed to supporting our communities and really wanted to support our hospital,” said Jason Wubs, President & Co-Chief Executive Officer. “Our head office is based in the community and it’s extremely important to us to give back to causes we believe in.”
Ten treatment spaces will be named in Westland Insurance’s honour including a pediatric bay in the resuscitation room, two acute care rooms, six pediatric treatment rooms and a pediatric storage alcove.
“Westland Insurance is a long-time sponsor of both our fundraising gala and Great Pumpkin Run Walk and we are thrilled they have come aboard as a major contributor to our ER campaign,” said Stephanie Beck, Executive Director of Peace Arch Hospital & Community Health Foundation. “Peace Arch Hospital was built by the community and that tradition continues to this day.”
