Nurse excited for Royal Inland Hospital tower opening in July

March 24, 2022

Nurse Simomo Ndebele says both patients & health-care professionals will benefit from the new Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Tower at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops.

A new era for the Royal Inland Hospital (RIH) in Kamloops will begin in July when a vision that has been in the works for years comes to reality with a massive capital investment in the region: the opening of the Phil & Jennie Gaglardi Tower at RIH. The new nine-storey hospital will continue to modernize the RIH campus, building on the opening of the Clinical Services Building in 2016.

During the design and construction of the Gaglardi Tower, health-care professionals were able to provide input into the design to ensure staff and physician working conditions were considered and to put patient care at the forefront. RIH registered psychiatric nurse Simomo Ndebele, known as Mo around the hospital, was one of the people who made the Gaglardi Tower a made-in-Kamloops-for-Kamloops design.
