Vancouver Diamond Lions Club Gives $25,000 towards the Medical Imaging Centre Campaign

Living up to its motto to serve and give back to the community, the Vancouver Diamond Lions Club held its 2023-24 installation and charity gala this past July, raising $25,000 in support of Richmond Hospital Foundation’s Medical Imaging Centre Campaign.

“Our members value the role that Richmond Hospital plays in maintaining a healthy community, and we want to help make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families in need,” shares Vivian Chung, President, Vancouver Diamond Lions Club. “We are honoured to support such an important campaign to help ensure Richmond Hospital has the latest medical imaging tools to provide the best care possible.”

The Vancouver Diamond Lions Club has been a long-standing supporter of Richmond Hospital Foundation, helping purchase urgently required equipment since 2009.

“We are grateful to the Vancouver Diamond Lions Club for their continuous support over the years,” shares Spencer Gall, Campaign Director, Richmond Hospital Foundation. “Their latest donation towards our Medical Imaging Centre Campaign will help ensure the growing population in Richmond will have access to increased medical imaging services in the new Milan & Maureen Ilich Medical Imaging Centre. Thank you to all club members for giving back to our community.”

The new Milan & Maureen Ilich Medical Imaging Centre will be at the heart of the future Yurkovich Family Pavilion, the hospital’s new acute care tower, which will also accommodate a new emergency department, an expanded surgical centre, and single-occupancy inpatient rooms with ensuites.

Richmond Hospital Foundation is raising $25 million to fund the latest imaging technologies that are key for diagnosing, tracking and monitoring medical conditions. These include CT scanners, MRI machines, mammography machines, SPECT machines, X-ray machines, and interventional radiology machines.
