The South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation raises funds to support the delivery of quality health services in our region.
You can help by making your donation for Penticton Regional Hospital, which serves the entire region. We also encourage donors to designate their financial gifts to one or more of the Health Care Facilities we serve in Penticton, Summerland, Oliver, Princeton and Keremeos.
The SOS Medical Foundation has entered the most ambitious campaign in our history. Coinciding with construction of the new $312.5-million David E. Kampe Tower at PRH, the Foundation is committed to raising $20 million for new medical equipment for the hospital expansion. We can do this with the community’s help.

David E. Kampe Tower
The physicians at Penticton Regional Hospital played an integral role in getting provincial government approval of the PRH expansion in 2014.
The Penticton Medical Staff Association produced this special video to thank local businessman David Kampe for his generous donations to the hospital. The new tower is being named after Mr. Kampe to honour his tremendous support for PRH.
