Five pediatric nurses recently received Florence (Egeland) Martin Excellence in Nursing bursaries. These education awards were created in memory of a highly respected nurse who spent more than 30 years at Surrey Memorial Hospital caring for sick children and their families.

Thanks to our donors, Surrey Hospital Foundation has provided more than $350,000 in funding for education over the past five years. This includes nursing awards as well as other education funding for nurses or health care professionals that provide specialized care.

Making a gift in tribute or honour of a family member, as the Egeland family chose to do, is a simple way to celebrate a family member’s legacy of caring for the community.  For information on how to create a family legacy gift, please contact Yolanda Bouwman at 604-585-5509 or yolanda.bouwman@fraserhealth.ca
