The West Coast General Hospital Foundation officially the West Coast Café on 31 October 2017.

The addition of this business to help the Foundation contribute to the success of the West Coast General Hospital was made possible by a $65,000 donation from the Italian Canadian Society, members from which were on hand for the opening.

The Foundation presented Mr. Crema with a plaque that reads “West Coast General Hospital Foundation gratefully acknowledges the generous donation from the Italian Canadian Society for completely funding the construction of the West Coast Café. Your generous gift will bring a substantial benefit to the Port Alberni Community for many years to come.”
