Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation supports Children’s Health Centre in SurreyMonday, Jun 21, 2021
The $100,000 donation assists with the renovation and expansion of the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
The Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation has pledged $100,000 to the Surrey Hospitals Foundation to support the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
The Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital is the regional pediatric centre for Fraser Health, which is home to 43 per cent of the province’s children. With Surrey’s population increasing by more than 50 per cent since the Children’s Centre originally opened in 2001, enhancements to the Centre were key to ensuring exceptional patient care.
With support from donors, the Centre is undergoing an extensive renovation in which new clinics will be added, and other areas, such as Neurology, Cardiology & Nephrology (kidney) will offer expanded services. A new pre- and post-surgery unit, and a new pediatric oncology unit, are now complete, and the expanded clinic saw its first young patient in August 2020. The clinic overlooks a colourful playground where recovering patients aged two and up can enjoy fresh air and exercise.
