A Community That Cares

You can help us care for your family, friends and loved ones

Being of service to the community is at the heart of the St. Joseph’s General Hospital Foundation. It remains important today and will be in the future as we look toward the master plan for health care in our region when acute care services will transition to a new hospital in 2017.

The Foundation has started the process and will soon undergo a period of transition as it expands its mandate to encompass the new Island Health Comox Valley Hospital while continuing to support St. Joseph’s General Hospital in its changing role.

As we begin on our journey of evolution we will remain steadfast in supporting the delivery of the very best health and care for the Comox Valley, today and into the future and we need your help.

To support the delivery of quality patient care leading up to the transfer of acute care services, St. Joseph’s must undergo a number of renovations to keep current with the standards and practices of providing safe and accessible services. Included in this plan is an expansion of the Cancer Care Unit that will see an increase in the physical space to accommodate more equipment and increase the overall comfort and efficiency of services.

Renovations for this project are $85,000.

New equipment needed is $45,000 Some of the items include:

  • ● 2 additional treatment chairs
  • ● Wall Mounted Ophthalmic Equipment
  • ● Wall Mounted Vital Sign Monitor
  • ● 4 Double Infusion Pumps
  • ● Supply Cart
  • ● Digital Scale
  • ● Refrigerator
  • ● Nursing Supply Cart

Together with the community this vital service can continue to be offered to the residents of the Comox Valley . Please join us in our quest to raise the funds needed for the Cancer care Unit expansion so that we can continue to help improve lives here and now.
