The first annual Foundation Week highlights the importance and impact of the 10 health care foundations within Fraser Health Authority.

COVID-19 Response Fund donors have helped secure over 100 additional pieces of equipment. Thanks to their support, Surrey Memorial’s Critical Care Team and Respiratory Teams are now able to utilize new ultrasound machines.

Donors have also helped us purchase vein finders, optiflow monitors, defibrillators, a UVGI cleaning robot, and more.

Interventional Oncology Program

SHF has invested in two innovative technologies to kick-start a new minimally invasive Interventional Oncology Program at Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH), a first in our community.

Tomosynthesis at the Breast Health Clinic

With incredible donor support, SHF was able to purchase Tomosynthesis for Surrey’s Breast Health Clinic at JPOCSC. This new 3D mammography machine will provide greater detection of abnormalities hidden in dense breast tissue, which will increase early detection of breast cancer, and provide greater accuracy for determining the exact size, shape, and location of abnormalities.

Czorny Alzheimer Centre is home to 72 dementia patients. SHF is pleased to support a monthly musical therapy program for these residents every month.
