Q̓ʷalayu House Officially Opens
The CBC reports that the Q̓ʷalayu House has now opened in Campbell River:
A new home away from home officially opened in Campbell River on Monday to support families and expectant mothers seeking maternal and pediatric care.
Q̓ʷalayu House is a 10-bed home next to North Island Hospital, and families will be able to stay at the house starting this summer.
Families who live in the North Island region often have to travel hours to Campbell River to seek medical care for their children, and the goal of Q̓ʷalayu House is to provide a place of support during an often emotionally and financially stressful time.
