Our Current Campaign is Supporting JoeAnna’s House

Built by the hearts & hands of our community, JoeAnna’s house offers affordable, on-site accommodations for out-of-town families with loved ones receiving care at KGH.

Featuring 20 family rooms, a contemporary communal cooking space, cozy common areas and other home-like amenities including laundry facilities and a kids’ play area, no detail has been spared in the design and construction.

Research shows patients heal faster and more effectively when surrounded by their loved ones. And family members bond with others through a shared experience. That’s why JoeAnna’s House is so important. It is a home-away-from-home that keeps families together when they need to be together most.

JoeAnna’s House is owned & operated by the KGH Foundation and is entirely supported by your donations.


Because you give, we can keep families together when they need it most.

As the region continues to grow and Kelowna General Hospital expands its capacity to offer advanced, specialized medical treatment, the need for JoeAnna’s House has never been greater. Even during the pandemic, families must still travel to Kelowna to support their loved ones, now under more strain than ever.

We are a community that is grateful and compassionate; a community that can and does accomplish big things when we work together. But we need your help.

Please give to support JoeAnna’s House.

We are better together.

“People always ask why, but maybe they should ask why not! You get to work with the nicest people, for the nicest people. It’s the best kind of job satisfaction you’ll ever find.”

“Linking the passion and desires of donors to the needs/opportunities of the health system and KGH is such a privilege. I am inspired most by the people; our team, donors, clinicians & caregivers, and administrators and ultimately, the transformative changes to our system of care that become possible when we work together. I am grateful to be able to feel such purpose in my work.”
