For the next year, Telus will donate $100 towards the expansion of Kelowna General Hospital for every new Optik TV and smartphone customer in Kelowna.

The donations will support the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation’s Take Care, Take Part campaign.

“The Kelowna General Hospital Foundation is pleased to work with Telus on this incredible partnership opportunity for the Take Care, Take Part campaign. This commitment will make a tremendous impact in helping us reach our fundraising goal of $6 million,” said Karen Borring-Olsen, the fundraising campaign chair.

“Telus is truly committed to the growth of our community and we are grateful to the staff and customers of Telus for their support.

“This donation will enable the doctors and staff at KGH to provide even better patient care, and enhance the experiences for patients, family and caregivers, physicians and staff.”

Funds raised by the year-long smartphone and Optik TV campaigns will help purchase the medical equipment needed to support expansion of Emergency Services and Ambulatory Care, and the creation of an on-site Medical Program with the University of British Columbia.

“The Kelowna General Hospital Foundation’s Take Care, Take Part campaign touches each and every family in our community, and the work they do improving health care in our region is critically important,” said Andrew Devlin, Telus director of sales.

“To be a part of their campaign by making a donation on behalf of every new customer taking advantage of Telus’ best-in-class wireless devices, our biggest and fastest mobile network, and the most advanced suite of TV and High Speed Internet Services is a privilege.”

Since 2000, TELUS, team members and retirees have contributed more than $1.03 million and volunteered 207,000 hours to Kelowna charities and community organizations.

That includes almost $600,000 already raised for Kelowna General Hospital through a previous Telus TV campaign.

The campaigns are available to all Kelowna residents that activate a Telus smartphone or subscribe to Optik TV between March 7, 2011, and March 7, 2012.
