So long Amy, hello Linda.

Former United Way spark plug Linda Roseneck officially succeeds Cowichan District Hospital Foundation's long-time administrative director, Amy Trippe Brophy, Jan. 1.

The pair was present at Saturday's public feedback session at VIU Cowichan toward building a new CDH somewhere, in the next decade or so.

For more than 12 years, Brophy has helped the foundation's board and members raise funds and buy innumerable pieces of gear for CDH. Those efforts now include helping fast track patient services in the hospital's chronically clogged ER, and plans to redesign the endoscopy.

Now it's Roseneck's turn.

Brophy aims to ride into the Arizona sun soon for some R&R, but hoped to be back in a foundation saddle of some form once back in Cowichan.

Roseneck is stoked about helping fill the valley's health needs through the proactive foundation.

"I really feel our hospital's a gem," the six-year Mill Bay resident and native Ontarian said.

She was also proud the foundation has raised about $1.4 million so far to help replace the aging hospital, built in 1967 off Gibbins Road.

"It's about having a vision for CDH for the future, and seeing it come closer to reality," she said.
