Message from CEO and Board Chair
We’re Stronger Together
In the face of unprecedented challenges, the past year has shown once again that we are truly stronger together. As we reflect on 2020, we know one thing for certain: each of us at Richmond Hospital Foundation is forever grateful to our health care team members and our community of donors for helping to respond to COVID-19.
Your overwhelming generosity has given us the right tools and resources to provide high quality care for your family, friends and neighbours during a time of great need.
In this newsletter, we’re excited to share with you the many ways that you’ve helped make a difference in 2020. You’ll learn about our Surgical Restart campaign, the largest refresh of surgical equipment in nearly a decade, changes to our In-Patient Mental Health Unit that will focus on person and family centred care for patients, new Emergency Department equipment we’ve been able to purchase to safely care for patients and to protect our teams, as well as progress towards a new Acute Care Tower and helping fund a new Community Health Access Centre.
Despite the challenges, there is certainly a lot to celebrate and we hope you’ll be proud of the impact you’ve made. Thank you for helping build a better and healthier future for Richmond by continuing to support Richmond Hospital Foundation. To live joyfully is to give joyfully.
