Help from friends goes a long way for clinic

Boston Bar First Nation thankful for assistance, expertise and unshakable faith

There is good news about Anderson Creek Clinic…the “little clinic on the hill!”

No doubt, many of you are aware of the services the clinic provides to the people of  Boston Bar First Nation and to the community members of Boston Bar.

Opened in 2010, it has been providing a variety of medical and dental services since that time. Now, this couldn’t have happened without the determined efforts and generous contributions of many.

We’d like to thank First Nations and Inuit Health which provided the funds to build the clinic and provide programming, and the Fraser Health Authority for providing a broad range of key medical personnel (including the nurse practitioners).

Recently the clinic received some very good news from Lloyd Forman. After attending a meeting in which equipment needs were discussed, Lloyd presented the clinic needs to Boston Bar District Council and the council approved a motion to provide the equipment (a storage shed, a locking filing cabinet for supplies, and a portable speculum). How fortunate we are to have so many good friends with such open hearts.

On behalf of Boston Bar First Nation, I would like to thank everyone for  their assistance, expertise and unshakable faith in our little clinic. And in light of the gifts we recently received, I would like to extend special thanks to Lloyd for advocating on the clinic’s behalf and to the Boston Bar District Council for its generous gift.

Clearly, with a little help from our friends we can go a long way! One hundred, thousand thanks!

Chief Dolores O’Donaghey,

Boston Bar
