Our Community is Generous

Our Community Champions program honours the community-building character of Surrey’s many businesses and local organizations looking for creative ways to give back.

Many community groups and neighbourhood businesses have already helped fund the Children’s Health Centre and Critical Care Tower at Surrey Memorial Hospital, as well as our much-needed Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre. They are Community Champions we all can be proud of for playing a big part in shaping the quality of health care we enjoy here in Surrey.
