Donation by Kenny and Arlene Kyan to support critical equipment, resources at Irene Thomas Hospice

Longtime Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation donors Kenny and Arlene Kyan have donated $50,000 to support critical equipment and resource needs at the Irene Thomas Hospice.

“My wife, Arlene, and I are so supportive of the Irene Thomas Hospice and we trust that Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation will ensure any future needs of the facility are met,” Kenny Kyan said in a DHCHF press release. “We hope that the community will join us in this support.”

Earlier this month, the foundation was announced at the philanthropic arm of the Delta Hospital Campus of Care, which includes the Mountain View Manor long-term care facility and the 10-suite hospice.
