On behalf of the Board of Directors, Welcome to Sechelt Hospital Foundation!

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Welcome to Sechelt Hospital Foundation!

People living on the Sunshine Coast deserve a great, full-service community hospital. In times of medical need, we want to ensure the latest technical and diagnostic services are available at the local level. The more we can do to support the provision of care on the Coast, the better off we all are.

We are the fundraising arm of the Sechelt Hospital and all the publicly funded health-care facilities and programs across the Sunshine Coast. The Foundation’s mandate is to purchase necessary equipment, furnishings and support capital projects, by prudently managing the donations you make to Sechelt Hospital Foundation. We work closely with our doctors, nurses and health care teams as well as hospital leadership to ensure donations are directed to the areas of greatest need. By working together with our community partners and generous donors we ultimately enhance patient care where and when we need it.

Over the past several years we have been fortunate to partner with the Sunshine Coast Healthcare Auxiliary in spearheading two major fundraising campaigns, ‘Back the Cat’ and ‘Gettin’ Equipt’, which have resulted in more than $4.7 million being donated to our community hospital. This huge effort put the Sunshine Coast on the map in terms of fundraising capabilities! As a result we have an award winning facility of which we can all be so proud.

This of course does not happen without the generosity of the Sunshine Coast community, who continue to help us in our goal to ensure residents of the Sunshine Coast receive quality health care whether as a patient in the Sechelt Hospital, in the community or at home. We are proud to live in a community that is so giving!

It is very rewarding for me to be part of the Foundation, supporting its mission, and I invite you to become involved!

Gerry Latham
Chair of the Sechelt Hospital Foundation Board of Directors
