TD generously supported Surrey Hospitals Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund with a donation of $10,000, specifically geared towards the Staff Nutrition and Wellness program. Our medical teams are a key resource to help fight this pandemic. Providing free meals throughout the pandemic not only helps them physically, it also provides emotional and psychological support during this critical time.
Surrey Memorial Hospital has just under 1500 staff members during day shifts and approximately 550 night shift staff. The Nutrition and Wellness program was made available to the whole team.
