Richmond Hospital Foundation, is a registered charity, dedicated to ensuring donors’ dollars have 100 percent impact on improving health care in Richmond.  We work closely with our doctors and health care teams as well as hospital leadership to ensure donations are directed to areas of greatest need.  

Founded in 1987, the Foundation has raised over $100 million in support of Richmond Hospital. Due to the advancement of today’s medical technologies and rapid growth of the population, tax dollars only pay for the basics of health care. Government can only sufficiently fund the daily operating and administrative costs of our hospital, Richmond Hospital needs donors’ support to fill the gap between government funding and the greater needs of the hospital.

Donations directly impact the acute and community care services that Richmond Hospital and Vancouver Coastal Health provides. Through donor funding, Richmond Hospital Foundation is able to support the purchase of the most urgently needed medical equipment and the latest technologies, fund capital infrastructure, patient care initiatives, research and education programs, giving our doctors and medical teams the vital tools they need to provide and enhance the compassionate, lifesaving health care they provide.

Richmond Hospital Foundation is there to ensure the best quality health care is available to us, our family members, friends, and neighbours in Richmond, close to home, when we need it the most.

Supporting local health care benefits patients, families, and anyone who relies on Richmond Hospital when they need it the most. Richmond Hospital is a vital part of our community, offering an extensive range of health care services including 24-hour Emergency care, many different surgical services, cancer care, state-of-the-art medical imaging and a birth centre. Richmond Hospital is here for the residents of Richmond and employees who work in our city, including the million passengers that pass through YVR each year, as well as our surrounding communities, including people across the entire province who travel to Richmond as the hub for provincial programs.
