FROM FIRST BREATH, TO END OF LIFE…
Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation – When you give, it changes everything…
Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation (CVHF) is an independent not-for-profit organization that raises funds in the community to enhance our local healthcare system where government funding ends. Through generous donations, CVHF has been able to fund over $13 million dollars to support the purchase of vital medical technology, physical space upgrades, capital projects, patient comfort items and staff education since 1993.
Donations to support Comox Valley healthcare come from the community in many ways: individual and corporate donations, events, service clubs, wills and estate gifts, grants, volunteering and staff payday lottery participation.
Areas of Care supported by your donations are:
North Island Hospital, Comox Valley campus: acute care needs and enhancement in areas like: Chemotherapy, Labour & Delivery, Pediatrics, Orthopedic Care, Cardio Pulmonary Services, Intensive Care, Emergency, Mental Health & Psychiatry, Surgical, Rehabilitation Services, Diagnostic Imaging, and more.
St. Joseph’s: Residential Care needs and enhancement in areas like the Eden Alternative Philosophy of Care initiatives, building upgrades, equipment, patient comfort, music therapy, special projects and staff education.
Health & Wellness Community Programs: Through grants and special events, CVHF helps fund community health & wellness programs such as the Take Heart & Breathe Well cardio pulmonary exercise program at the Comox Community Centre, and the “Books for Babies” program.
When you donate, you can choose to donate to Areas of Greatest Need in our community, or a Specified Area of Care (ie. Cancer Care, Residential Care, Cardiac Care, etc). Our Foundation is committed to ensure that our donors’ wishes are honoured, because when you give to Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation, you help change everything from first breath to end of life… Thank you for 24 years of support!
