On December 11th, 2019, Dr. Peter Chung and his family made an announcement that they were donating $1 million to the Children’s Health Centre renewal campaign. This thoughtful, generous donation was made in memory of their late son, Joseph. Please watch this touching video to learn more about their inspiration for this gift.

Dr. Victoria Lee, President & CEO of Fraser Health, joined us for this event, as did a brave 13 year old oncology patient who is receiving treatment at Surrey Memorial. Grace Drummond, with her mother Laura, shared how important it is to have care close to home.

With this gift, which is one of three $1 million donations to this campaign, Surrey Hospital Foundation has just $1 million away from our $6 million commitment for this project.

Surrey Hospital Foundation is raising $6 million to transform the Children’s Health Centre by creating a larger, family-friendly space with more clinics for outpatients and a dedicated area for kids who need day care procedures. The changes will also mean that more patient rooms will be available for children who need overnight stays.
