The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation announced the hiring of a new Director of Finance.
Liz Grosch has an extensive accounting background, most recently with the Okanagan wine industry. She will manage the Foundation’s finances and handle equipment funding requests from Penticton Regional Hospital and several other Interior Health facilities throughout the region.
Grosch succeeds Leah Schulting who recently became executive director for Canadian Mental Health in Penticton.
Carey Bornn, the SOS Medical Foundation’s Executive Director, said he is very excited about having Grosch join the non-profit organization’s team.
“Liz has fantastic accounting knowledge and experience which will help us not only have confidence in our finances going forward, but I believe will help us to continue to improve our processes,” Bornn said.
“This is an exciting time at the Foundation as we are in a $20-million fundraising campaign to acquire medical equipment for the David E. Kampe Tower, now under construction at PRH.”
The new six-storey tower will be completed by the spring of 2019, when work begins on a major upgrade to the PRH Emergency Department.
