‘Back the CAT’

In 2006, the Foundation’s Board of Directors embarked on a major fundraising campaign to purchase and install a CT Scanner at Sechelt Hospital. Under the direction of the Fund Development Committee of the Board, the Dr. Walter Burtnick Memorial Fundraising campaign was created, with its slogan ‘Back the CAT’. Sechelt Hospital Foundation along with its major partner, the Sechelt Hospital / Healthcare Auxiliary, surpassed its goal by raising more than $2.7 million in sixteen months. Today, Sunshine Coast residents receive CT scans at home in the new hospital facility developed to house the equipment.
