"With the ongoing support of the Waterfall Committee, we reached this year's Gift of Healing goal," said Kendall Sawa, KGH Vice President for Patient Care Services, who chaired the campaign to fund a minimally invasive surgical suite. "Year after year, we are appreciative of the grants from the Waterfall Committee to our local and State communities towards technologies that benefit residents in the State of Alaska when it comes to cancer care, treatment, and diagnosis. Meeting this year's Gift of Healing target will better enable us to keep pace with new technologies that enable minimally invasive procedures, and enhanced diagnostic capabilities."
The Ketchikan General Hospital Foundation has received $80,000 from the Waterfall Committee since its first grant of $25,000 in 2005; that was the KGH Foundation's first campaign to help fund the Women's Diagnostic Imaging Suite. Since then the KGH Foundation has received two additional grants of $15,000 from the Waterfall Committee.
The Waterfall Committee has raised and distributed over $4,500,000 to health care facilities statewide. The annual fishing weekend and auction was August 7 and 8 at the Waterfall Resort on the west coast of Prince of Wales Island.
