Every day in communities across the southern interior of British Columbia, thousands of families’ lives are impacted by the need for urgent or specialized medical care at Kelowna General Hospital. Illness, injury, the premature birth of a child, the end of life; all part of the collective human experience, and yet when they arrive, everything changes in a heartbeat.
In these moments, access to world-class, state-of-the-art medical facilities and the highest quality patient care is the difference. Healthcare that is being made possible by you. A promise of hope, relief, comfort and peace in the face of the unknown.
The benefactors of your generosity are more than just patients; they are our family members, friends, colleagues, neighbors, the lady at the grocery store, your favourite coffee barista. They are doctors and nurses, EMTs, clinicians and all the extraordinary people who work in healthcare that must do the work that many of us shudder to think about.
Yet, giving to support the KGH Foundation really isn’t just about changing health care in our community. It’s more than just fixing what is broken, curing what is sick or healing what is wounded. Giving changes us. It is what connects us when things fall apart. It is what unites us as communities and as human beings. It reminds us of who we are, the values we share and what is truly important in life.
