The need is critical
Join us in our most ambitious campaign in our history to build a new Intensive Care Unit
As part of the more than $33 million budget to build a new Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH), the Hospital Foundation is raising $5 million for all the new medical equipment. NRGH has been providing exemplary care to patients with severe, life-threatening illnesses and injuries in the current ICU for 50 years. When you need this level of care, it is critical the ICU has the latest medical equipment. In 2013, an external review said despite the challenges in an outdated facility, NRGH’s ICU ranks near the top nationally for positive patient health outcomes. Providing our expert medical teams with a modern space and state-of-the-art equipment will enable them to continue delivering this exceptional level of care for years to come.
We are in desperate need to expand and modernize the ICU. Your support is critical.

The second time was a rare and difficult to diagnose case of steroid resistant pneumonia that required life support for several days. We cannot begin to express our gratitude for the wonderful people who work in our ICU and save lives every day, as they did for Sharon, but do it in a worn out inadequate facility that desperately needs replacing. Our loved one’s lives are at risk whenever something serious happens and many families like ours still have a wife, a mother and a grandmother only because of our ICU. Our story is not unique and mercifully has a happy ending. We ask everyone to dig deep and remember it can happen to anyone and sometimes even twice.
