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.

Haley & Dave’s Story

For 46-year-old Dave Opperman and his wife, Haley Walker, the three words “Every Moment Matters” have taken on new meaning.

“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.”

“In Canada, I think we take our health care for granted. We don’t have a clue what anything costs. But every appointment and procedure has a price tag. We have always contributed to the hospital in a small way. However, after my emergency heart surgery and hospital stay, it seemed even more important. We want to contribute to the ongoing excellence of treatment and care at KGH.”
