Tilbury-based Chemposite Inc. recently made a generous gift of $400,000 to Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund.
This donation has been used to fast track critical infection control equipment and will continue to fund priority COVID-19 related equipment and infrastructure.
Through owner Sarah Lam’s donation, vital infection control equipment such as isolation carts, overbed tables and protective equipmenthas supplied the healthcare team at Delta Hospital with the tools required to work through the pandemic. Critical infrastructure enhancements, safety protocol and operational improvements were also funded to protect staff as they continue to provide the best healthcare for our community.
“Before my husband Samuel passed away, we discussed and agreed that when the time comes, we should support Delta Hospital and continue our support into the future,” said Lam. “We have huge respect for the hospital staff and are grateful to have the opportunity to support Delta Hospital.”
Founded in 1982 by Samuel and Sarah Lam, Chemposite Inc. has grown from a local fabrication shop in Delta to a multi-national corporation with factories, manufacturing alliances and representation worldwide. Awarded for its fabrication excellence, Chemposite manufactures products for a wide range of industries, including chemical, pulp and paper, mining, oil and gas, wastewater treatment, and manufacturing.
“We are humbled to have received this incredibly generous gift from Ms. Lam and Chemposite Inc.,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. “Ensuring our site has the necessary equipment and resources on site during these challenging times is our priority. We could not do this without the generosity of donors, and we feel very fortunate that Chemposite Inc. has chosen to support Delta Hospital.”
