What are you Thankful for?

As the Thanksgiving weekend draws closer, you should take time to reflect on the things that you are most thankful for. That list almost always starts with family, friends, and loved ones. High on my list, I am thankful to have relatively good health.

I am extremely thankful that Golden is fortunate enough to have the Golden & District Hospital and Durand Manor complete with compassionate and caring doctors and staff. What better way to thank those folk than to join the Friends of the Golden and District hospital and donate a gift to buy equipment that helps them help us.

The size of the gift, $50 or $500, is less important than the message it sends; "Thank you".

This is the last day the online fundraising page, Giving Thanks to the Golden & District Hospital 2019, is accepting donations.

Dr. Virginia Clark; "We really need this machine!"


"There are many occasions where we have individuals who are in crisis in our trauma bay and cannot safely be moved to the x-ray department to get needed images of the chest, spine, neck or lab fractures.  Having this portable x-ray machine that comes to the patient when the patient cannot come to the x-ray can help us provide timely care in a safer fashion.  This new machine can provide better imaging for interpretation and is sorely needed." Dr. Virginia Clark.
