Copper Project 2023 Breaks Ground
NOV 3, 2022
CopperFalls Custom Homes is continuing the tradition of supporting healthcare in Northern BC with the ground-breaking of the Copper Project 2023. Now entering its fourth year in support of Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation, this beautiful custom home is located at 2983 Links Drive in the Aberdeen Glen Subdivision and will feature a 1542 sq ft fully developed home. Helping the project take shape is a team of over 45 dedicated contractors and suppliers, most who have supported the project year after year.
"We live and raise our children in Prince George and want the best healthcare services available if and when it is needed" said Jeff Stewart and Brent Scheck, co-owners of CopperFalls Custom Homes. "Healthcare has touched us in many ways already and it is our way of doing what we do best and working with those who support us to collectively have an impact..... It shows collaboration in the biggest way."
Over the past four years, the Copper Project has contributed over $310,000 to a variety of vital pieces of medical equipment at UHNBC. Most recently, and thanks to the 2022 Copper Project, the RT300 Supine Restorative Leg Exerciser was added to the Intensive Care Unit at UHNBC. The Supine Unit promotes early mobility and leg exercise for ICU patients and helps to facilitate shorter ICU stays and ultimately a smoother return to everyday life.
"We are so very grateful to Jeff and Brent at CopperFalls Custom Homes, and the incredible group of contractors and suppliers for their generosity and dedication to improving healthcare in the North" said Aimee Cassie, CEO, Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. "This project has had a significant impact and has truly made a difference for patients here at home. It is truly humbling to see a collaboration of this size come together, and the benefit will be felt right here at home by our friends and families."
Previous years have supported various additions including a Dedicated Maternal Operating Room, Breast Health Imaging, and Ortho Video Operating Room Tower to name just a few. Thanks to campaigns like the Copper Project, bringing state of the art equipment to the Northern region can become more of a reality at a time when we need it most.
