Honour Dr. Todd Owatz and Help Us Raise Funds for the Ambulatory Care Department at KBRH

Dr. Todd Owatz was a dedicated surgeon and worked in the Ambulatory Care Unit at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH). When Dr. Owatz passed away on Oct 15, 2020 he left a legacy of care and service to his patients and colleagues.  In addition to his work at KBRH, Dr. Owatz had a passion for fitness and health.
