Medical teams are working around the clock right now to treat COVID-19 patients in our ICU, the specialized COVID-19 Unit and acute wards at LGH. They need more resources to ensure they stay safe and patients receive the care they need.
With your help, we can take care of the frontline staff who work around the clock to take care of us. We’ll also provide support for people with existing medical issues on the North Shore who are under the care of VCH community health care workers.
The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund was launched with dozens of donations ranging from $40 to $250,000. Two significant donations of $50,000 each were made by Bruce and Diana Chan and an anonymous North Shore family. Their gifts were followed by a generous pledge of $250,000 from Paul Myers, a renowned North Shore philanthropist and long-time friend of Lions Gate Hospital..
100% of donations received will be spent on:
• Critical care equipment and supplies
• The support of medical teams at LGH
• Home support clientsWe are also accepting food donations.
