Who You Help
As BC's leading critical care hospital, one in three British Columbians rely on Royal Columbian Hospital. As the hospital takes on the numerous challenges of COVID-19, Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation has focused its efforts on helping to ensure front-line healthcare workers and other groups vital to the hospital have the resources and support they need.
From new medical equipment and initiatives to improve patient and caregiver safety to measures that support mental wellness, the Foundation is funding a wide-range of approaches to help the fight against COVID-19. All this, while Royal Columbian also undergoes one of the most ambitious hospital redevelopments in Canadian history – a $1.49 billion transformation which the Foundation is supporting every step of the way.
