When you buy a ticket to the Foundation’s Hometown Heroes Lottery or the Millionaire Lottery, you’re helping fund research and urgently needed medical equipment at Vancouver General Hospital, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre, Vancouver Community Health Services and Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute.
Lottery funds have an immediate impact on patient care by supporting the purchase of essential equipment that support a wide range of areas. Last year, $4.5M was raised with $803,377 distributed to fund research projects and $3,659,828 to purchase urgently needed equipment.
Replacing and purchasing new equipment is always a priority at the hospital sites and the lottery funds go a long way in ensuring our health care teams have the tools needed to provide patient outcomes.
The demands on keeping pace with health care needs and equipment has never been greater. With the use of lottery funds and donations, the Foundation is better able to ensure your loved ones receive the best treatment available.
“Lottery proceeds fund urgently needed medical equipment at VGH that we would not be able to purchase without the support of our lottery ticket buyers. On behalf of the patients and staff at VGH, thank you so much to all our lottery supporters!”
– Dr. Brian Kwon, Orthopaedic Surgeon, VGH
