In 1905, prior to our hospital’s first building becoming a reality, the Ladies Aid formed with the mission of funding the material and sewing machine required to create the hospital’s sheets, blankets and surgical dressings. Now, over 100 years later and with a change in name, the Kelowna Hospital Auxiliary to the KGH Foundation continues its legacy by providing medical equipment and furnishings for ongoing patient care.
This Auxiliary boasts 85 members with 14 life members and approximately 280 active volunteers who operate our hospital’s Perking Lot, Royal Bistro and Centennial Mercantile Gift Shop. Together, these outstanding individuals have contributed to saving and changing countless lives.
