Foundation Spotlight Series: East Kootenay Foundation for Health

June 7, 2024
Brenna Baker, executive director, EKFH, stands next to a neonatal intensive care warmer. It's one of the items the Foundation hopes to purchase through their Warm Embrace campaign to bring a neonatal intensive care unit to the East Kootenay.

Foundations in the Interior Region raise funds that support medical equipment, care needs, and innovative local initiatives in their communities. Each organization includes respected community leaders, volunteers and staff who are passionate about meeting the needs of patients and families in Interior Health. Thanks to the generosity of their supporters, we all have a stronger health system. 

In this story in our series on the incredible health-care and hospital foundations throughout our region, we interviewed Brenna Baker, executive director of the East Kootenay Foundation for Health.
