Nanaimo Hospital Auxiliary

By Thank You!

The Nanaimo Hospital Auxiliary is a dynamic group of nearly 250 men and women volunteers who have raised millions of dollars for the purchase of equipment and services at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). They raise money through their operation of two retail stores – the Hospital Gift Shop and our Thrift Store at Northridge Plaza – as well as running the Hospital staff 50/50 Lottery draw, and through sales of goods made by their Craft Group. Their prime focus is to be a caring organization which provides services and financial help for patient care and comfort items, for everyone who uses Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and to encourage support for the hospital within the community. They recently presented the Hospital Foundation with a cheque for $100,000 for the critical care medical equipment for the new ICU. We cannot thank this group enough for making such an extraordinary impact on our hospital.
