Quinsam Coal DIGS Health Care!

Quinsam Coal Corporation and its Employees have long been supporters of our community and that includes health care.  Again they have demonstrated their commitment to quality health care for Campbell River and North Vancouver Island through a donation to the Campbell River Hospital Maternity Department.   Quinsam Coal has raised more than $23,000 since 2005 in support of Cancer Care and the Maternity and Rehabilitation Departments; this has been accomplished through Quinsam Coal Corporation and their employees as well as their participation in the Canada Day Bed Race. "Quinsam Coal makes a difference; from the corporation to its employees we feel that we have a true partner in supporting health care," states Stacey Marsh Executive Director.  Quinsam is the only underground coal mine in British Columbia, and the only underground thermal-coal mine in all of Canada. It has been in operation for more than 20 years and produces approximately 500,000 metric tonnes of high-quality coal each year. "Most of our employees live and work in the Campbell River area and supporting our hospital is a natural choice for us," states Jennifer Shire-Smith, Human Resources Manager at Quinsam Coal.  "Our employees have embraced the Hospital Foundation through the Canada Day Bed Race and various other fundraising activities throughout the year.  We hope that we won't need it, but if we do, we know that our hospital is there for us." The Campbell River Hospital Foundation is a registered charity devoted to raising funds for the Campbell River Hospital and Yucalta Lodge.   To learn how you can help make a difference contact the Hospital Foundation office at 250-850-2418.
