Our community deserves the very best care. You can help!

Please help as we equip our new Intensive Care Unit and its High Acuity Unit

High Acuity Units, or HAUs, are a fairly new idea. But a good one. A needed one. They’re a step away from intensive care, for patients who still need a great deal of attention, equipment, and care. But patients who can safely be removed from the ICU.
They’re a step down from an ICU. But only a step away if we suddenly need to intervene.

None of us knows when we may need our hospital. Or when we – or a loved one – might find ourselves in intensive care. And if that happens, we all want to know we’ll receive the very best care, with the best facilities and equipment possible. Thanks to your support, we have raised over $5 million for the ICU. Now, we are raising an additional $5 million for the future HAU.
That’s why we need you. Please will you join your neighbours with a gift today? It’s critical!

“I am very proud of the team I have lead in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) over the last 21 years at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.  Every day, they overcome many challenges to provide excellent patient care. Thanks to your support, in this new ICU, our team will have the space, latest medical equipment and resources needed to meet the growing demand for critical care.”
