Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. It’s where three of my grandchildren took their first breath… and where my beloved wife Linda took her last, too soon…
Each year the medical professionals in our healthcare facilities come to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation for help. They bring a carefully honed list with them. It’s the most urgently needed equipment. State-of-the art technologies for new clinical spaces or to replace aging pieces nearing the end of their useful life. The equipment they know their patients need most.
Thanks to our generous community, the Foundation responds to meet the needs of our healthcare providers at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH), Oceanside Health Centre, and our three long-term care facilities, contributing millions each year to fund the latest medical equipment, facility upgrades, healthcare provider training, and patient comfort items. We’ve recently funded:
$5.5 million in state-of-the art equipment for the new Intensive Care Unit (ICU) that opened this June
$140,000 for the latest surgical technologies for patients experiencing breast cancer
$600,000 for the new Hip and Knee Centre for patients requiring Orthopedic surgery
$14,000 for comfort items for our Pain Clinic to support patients experiencing chronic pain
You’re invited to join us for a family-friendly event outside the main entrance to the hospital when we will flip the switch and Light the Trees! Our displays will include ornaments and decorations sent in by our generous donors, in addition to the wonderful lights.
