AREA OF GREATEST NEED

Your donation to our Area of Greatest Need goes right to our highest priority need. Funds are assigned to address the most critical medical and clinical needs of our partners at KGH. Healthcare is complicated. Urgent needs constantly arise that affect our quality of healthcare. These funds are used to shorten the time people must wait for diagnosis or treatment. They often assist critical infrastructure needs like creating temporary spaces for patients during high surge times like flu season. And these funds are used to make people’s stay a little less stressful – like creating a space for a loved one to stay in the patient’s room to provide support and comfort.

COVID-19 RELIEF

Before COVID-19, a ‘normal’ day at Kelowna General Hospital consisted of hundreds of procedures, treatments, surgeries, consultations, scans and life-saving medical interventions. But now, everything has changed. Day to day operations have radically shifted. KGH staff are being stretched to work within a stressful ‘new normal’ with unanticipated gaps left by the reallocation of resources to protect us from the virus. And this is all in addition to the regular urgent care that continues each day. Every donation is dedicated to funding the most urgent needs at KGH as we respond to and recover from this unprecedented challenge to our health system.

“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.”

“I am inspired by how selfless people are – caring for others who they have never met and whose story they may never know.  But yet they give generously to make the situation of others better.  I have so much respect for those who act to make the world a better place.  In the end it all that matters.”
