Message from CEO and Board Chair
It Takes a Village
It is with great joy that we share with you our latest updates from Richmond Hospital Foundation.
When we interviewed long-time donor Lorraine Palmer for this newsletter, her statement “It takes a village to keep the village going” served as a great reminder of what it takes to build a better and healthier future for our Richmond community. Donors are our village, and we wouldn’t be here without you.
Your financial support is at the heart of our accomplishments to date, and those to come. As you’ll read in this newsletter, you’ve helped us transform the patient care journey on many fronts.
From the time a patient walks into our Urgent and Primary Care Centre or Emergency Department to when they are discharged from Richmond Hospital, the impact of your philanthropy is evident. In this newsletter, you’ll discover how the Emergency Department has improved communication with patients by adopting and embracing virtual interpretation, how the Laboratory is helping doctors make good care decisions with timely and accurate lab results, how the new Medical Imaging Centre will be a building block for the future, and much more.
Thank you for helping us keep our village healthy. Your continued support of Richmond Hospital Foundation is pivotal to improving patient care now and into the future.
