Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation
The Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation was created to provide meaningful opportunities for people to contribute to improving health care in the service area of the University Hospital of Northern BC, Prince George.
The community has responded very generously: in the 23 years since the Foundation was created, more than $27 million has been contributed towards capital equipment and improvements, and supporting the education of health care workers and medical staff.
The Foundation believes there is a spirit in the North which drives us to succeed -- to determine our own well being and sense of community.

The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen on a video screen.
