Research you make possible
We are the philanthropic engine for health care innovation and transformation in British Columbia. Our hospitals and health care centres are able to deliver the best possible patient care because of your support. By recruiting world-class medical professionals and equipping them with the tools and technology to do their best work we are improving the health of our communities and saving lives across the province.
This magazine is a celebration of our values, to transform health care, inspire donors, and save lives.
Inside, you will find stories of honesty, hope, and humanity. Stories of our clinician-scientists and the steps they are taking to make the world a better place.
None of this would be possible without you. Every one of our donors, friends and supporters are vital to this success story.
