10 years. 3 million lives.
Give today and double your donation!
Surrey Hospitals Foundation is pleased to announce that Canadian business icon Jim Pattison is making a $4 million matching donation to kick-start a fundraising campaign to upgrade equipment inside the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre (JPOCSC).
The 188,000 square foot, LEED Gold outpatient facility is celebrating 10 years of service this year. It has weathered its formative years well, earning a stellar reputation for excellence in care, innovation, quality design, and maintenance. Over 3 million patients from all over British Columbia have received care here since it opened its doors in 2011.
Since inception, this unique Centre has been a magnet for doctors, surgeons and other specialists. When its doors were opened, JPOCSC had approximately 100 clinicians and 50 clinics. Today, the medical team has grown to 527 and the Centre boasts 56 clinics, including a Cardiac Care Clinic, Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic, Chronic Pain Clinic, and the renowned Breast Health Clinic. The newest of these are one of only three post-COVID clinics in BC, and Fraser Health’s New Canadian Clinic. These clinics are not only key resources for our health region, which serves 1 in 20 Canadians, but its unique services are utilized by patients throughout British Columbia.
This award-winning Centre is beautifully maintained. However, 80% of medical equipment is fully depreciated and approaching end-of-life. As part of the equipment renewal and investment plan, Fraser Health has requested our support in purchasing several large pieces of critical diagnostic equipment valued at $8 million.
We thank Mr. Pattison for his leadership gift toward this renewal. Please support this important regional Centre with a gift today, and your donations will be matched, dollar for dollar.
Investment in innovative, life-saving equipment not only helps better diagnose and treat patients, but also helps us attract and retain the best medical talent from around the world.
