LETTER: New name for hospital foundation in Surrey

The Editor,

Thanks to the generous support from the community, Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation has been part of some momentous changes in healthcare in the past few years.

Our donors have been with us every step of the way. You have helped us to raise funds for the innovative equipment and technology needed for our newest facilities: the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre and the Critical Care Tower, home to B.C.’s newest emergency department and the only children’s emergency outside of Vancouver. Both the hospital and the outpatient centre provide families living south of the Fraser with access to exceptional health care close to home.

To help our specialists and health professionals continue to provide exceptional care, we will continue to ask the community for its generous help. However, it’s now time for us to make a change to reflect our support for both facilities.

We are now the Surrey Hospital Outpatient Centre Foundation. We value your support and we will continue to work with our donors to champion exceptional care at both facilities.

Jane Adams

President and CEO, Surrey Hospital Outpatient Centre Foundation
