New Critical Care Tower lobby honours entrepreneurial family

Ralph and Lorraine Berezan donated $2-million to the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation.

A Fraser Valley entrepreneur marked the recent opening of the Critical Care Tower lobby at Surrey Memorial Hospital with a landmark gift to the hospital foundation.

In honour of Ralph and Lorraine Berezan’s $2-million donation to Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation, the lofty, light-filled space is now named the Lorraine and Ralph Berezan Lobby. Ralph Berezan is a longtime supporter of the hospital, as well as a successful businessman with roots in the Fraser Valley. He has been an active member of the foundation’s board of directors for five years.

The Berezans’ donation is part of the foundation’s Building Foundations Campaign. The funds from this campaign will be used to purchase 20 per cent of the equipment needed for the tower, which is scheduled to be completed and open for patients in June 2014.
