In 2019, the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation took on its most ambitious campaign to date: to raise $5 million for all the state-of-the-art medical equipment for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s (NRGH) new Intensive Care Unit (ICU). We are happy to report that we have surpassed that goal! As of 2022, we are now in Phase 2 of the ICU campaign: to raise another $5 Million for the High Acuity Unit (HAU), an additional space within the ICU.
Learn more about the new HAU Campaign...
The campaign to raise $5 Million for the new ICU at NRGH was a huge milestone for our community. The current ICU is amongst the oldest in BC, serving more than 450,000 residents north of the Malahat. In spite of that, NRGH’s ICU ranks near the top nationally for positive patient health outcomes. The new ICU will not only ensure the most critically ill in our central and north Vancouver Island Island communities receive the high level of care NRGH staff provide in a bright, clean and open space with adequate resources and equipment, but it will also open the door for essential health care services to be brought to NRGH. We have our sights on expanded cancer care, a new Cardiac Cath Lab, integrated community health services, and ultimately a new patient tower that will replace the 60-year-old facility we currently have.
Thank you so much for being a part of this milestone campaign. Stay connected with us throughout Phase 2 to equip the future HAU.
