The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation officially wrapped up its annual fundraising campaign Wednesday evening.

Hospital Foundation Executive Director Ashley Bentley, proudly announced they had raised more than $194,000 for the Foundation throughout the month of November. This year the goal was set at
$200,000 and the foundation expects to exceed that number in the coming days.

This year the money will go towards priority medical equipment for the Hospital.

To celebrate the accomplishment, the Foundation held its annual Christmas tree light-up Wednesday. However, the hospital’s tree is dying because of the invasive mountain pine beetle so 2010 may be the last year the tree will be lit up.

Plans are already in place for a new tree to be planted at the site of the new hospital – located off the East Bypass Road – which will be operational by 2012.

You can still make a donation to the Foundation by visiting it in the lobby of the hospital, by calling 250-262-5299 or online at
