West Valley Hospital receives donation for expansion and renovation project

An anonymous donor has gifted $50,000 to the West Valley Hospital Foundation in support of the hospital’s $6.2 million project to expand and remodel its surgery department. Improvements include state-of-the-art technology, larger more versatile operating rooms, and a new separate surgical waiting area with consultation rooms where patients’ families can meet privately with doctors after surgery. The new surgical department will be more conducive to specialized care, allowing the hospital to offer the residents of Polk County a greater range of procedures that can be performed at West Valley Hospital.

“The West Valley Hospital Foundation is grateful to have received this gift,” said Foundation Chair Carrie Casebeer. “Updating the surgical department so we can serve more patients here at our local hospital will be a great benefit to the community.”

The West Valley Hospital Foundation is dedicated to raising, managing and distributing funds to help West Valley Hospital achieve its mission of improving the health and well-being of the people and community it serves.
