With Heart for Heroes

Serving one-third of British Columbians, Royal Columbian Hospital’s healthcare heroes play an integral role in ensuring the wellbeing of our communities. Tasked with treating some of our province’s most seriously ill and injured patients, the demands placed on them have intensified as the COVID-19 pandemic carries on.

In each moment since the pandemic was declared on March 11, 2020, Royal Columbian’s healthcare heroes have fought for their patients with all of their heart – as they always have and always will. For these heroes, the fight isn’t over yet. But you can help them keep fighting.

Make a gift and help provide our healthcare team with the resources they need to carry out their vital work safely, and to give their patients the best outcomes possible.

They have always been there for us. Now is the time for us to be there for them. Please, give with heart for our heroes.

The Foundation is immensely grateful to Royal Columbian anesthesiologist Dr. Patricia Johnson, who is generously matching gifts made up to $50,000.

More Information

This past year as we navigated the challenges created by the pandemic, the Foundation provided valuable assistance with funding and in-kind support for a range of equipment, research, patient comfort, and staff wellness initiatives.

Our donors allowed the Foundation to respond quickly to the evolving needs of the hospital.

Providing new and innovative equipment remains at the core of the support provided by the Foundation, and donors have helped us acquire a number of tools that have been crucial in the hospital’s response to COVID-19. These include glidescopes to help intubate patients safer, ultrasounds to assess cardiac and lung status of COVID-19 patients, smartphones and tablets to help communication between caregivers, patients, and their families, and a germ-killing UV robot to clean and disinfect “hot spots”. The Foundation has also continued to make research a priority, with more than a million dollars in commitments to research projects over the last year.

In addition to providing the tools to care for patients, the Foundation joined with an overwhelming number of individuals, businesses, and organizations to support wellness initiatives. This included 13,699 meals provided to physicians, nurses, allied healthcare professionals, and other staff; 55,917 cups of coffee; and 3,500 care packages. The Foundation coordinated the delivery of PPE donations, worked with hotel partners to provide accommodations for Fraser Health staff and medical staff when they needed to isolate from their loved ones or stay closer to the hospital, and helped share hundreds of public messages of support.

While pandemic-related needs became the immediate focus in 2020, the Foundation and its donors also continue to support the multi-year, multi-phase redevelopment of Royal Columbian Hospital. In 2020, the new Mental Health and Substance Use Wellness Centre opened as part of phase 1 of redevelopment. Next, we welcome construction of a new Acute Care Tower during phase 2.

As the hospital’s needs continue to evolve and construction progresses on the phases of redevelopment, we look forward to working with our donors in support of our caregivers.
