The money will go toward the tower’s new trauma inpatient unit over four years.

The nine-storey patient care tower will be located behind the clinical services building, which was constructed three years ago on Columbia Street.

It includes 44 underground parking spaces, 157 surface parking spots and a rooftop heliport. The $417-million expansion is expected to be completed by spring 2022.

Bob and Shirley Stollery established the Stollery Charitable Foundation in Edmonton in 1994. Its work focuses on health, education, poverty alleviation and human rights.

Today, that legacy is continued by the foundation and family, including daughter Janet, who lives in Kamloops with her husband Spencer Bryson, who is also a Stollery Foundation board director.

The donation is the largest the Stollery Foundation has made in the Kamloops region to date.
