Country Grocer donates $50,000 for new Emergency Department at Lady Minto Hospital

Country Grocer is pleased to announce our support for the construction of a New Emergency Department at Lady Minto Hospital. We hope that our $50,000 donation will help to “Strengthen the Lifeline” by building a state-of-the-art facility that will serve us for years to come.

We’re an integral part of this community. Our staff, customers and visitors rely on the institutions that provide critical services to help Salt Springers thrive. Leigh Large, owner of Country Grocer Salt Spring, Pharmacy and Upper Ganges Liquor Store, encourages Salt Springers to join us in helping Lady Minto Hospital Foundation reach its fundraising goals.

The health of our community has always been a priority for Country Grocer. We’re delighted that islanders will receive even better care, thanks to the new Emergency Department at Lady Minto Hospital.

Leigh added: “Similar to many others on Salt Spring, I have benefitted from excellent care during an unplanned visit to the Emergency Ward at Lady Minto. I recognize the value of our hospital, and am grateful for the excellent treatment I received. However, it was also evident that our local hospital needed a new Emergency Ward.”

As the island’s largest employer, Country Grocer is proud to take a lead in contributing to the exceptional quality of life here on Salt Spring.
