How Your Giving… Changes Everything
Funds raised for our Foundation are received through grants, service clubs, 3rd party events and from generous members of our community. In the last five years over two million dollars was transferred from our Foundation to The Comox Valley Hospital, The Views at St. Joseph’s and other community healthcare initiatives.
Physical space upgrades, building expansions, innovative programs and new medical technology are just a few ways your donations help improve healthcare in the Comox Valley.
Through your donations, the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation has provided funds for the vital equipment, services, and treatment options our community needs. Earlier this year the Urology Department, was the recipient of a new lithotripter, a high frequency ultrasonic probe that breaks down large kidney stones. Without this instrument, patients in the Comox Valley would have to go to Victoria to have this procedure.
“I am grateful to the Healthcare Foundation for helping us every way they can. We are fortunate to have them, along with the generosity of their donors, supporting the work we do to help make the lives better for all of those in our community.” — Dr. Will Tinmouth, Urologist
