Don’t miss your chance to win the growing jackpot by joining Royal Columbian Hospital’s 50/50 draw.
The more tickets sold, the higher the prize.
“By purchasing a ticket today, you’re investing in the future of healthcare that will help the most critically ill and injured from throughout the province,” Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation Chief Development Officer Salima Mawji says.
Funds raised by the hospital lottery will go directly towards one of the most ambitious hospital redevelopments in Canadian history — a transformational, multi-year plan that will revolutionize the way the hospital delivers care to its patients by creating a world-class, state-of-the-art hospital.
The cornerstone of the project, a new Acute Care Tower, will elevate life-saving care in the largest and fastest-growing health region in B.C.
As one of two Level 1 Trauma Centres for adults in B.C., Royal Columbian is equipped, trained and certified to deal with large-scale catastrophes. It receives more Air Ambulance patients directly from accident scenes than any other hospital in the province.
In the new Acute Care Tower, the Emergency Department will include four trauma bays and a new Imaging Unit strategically placed within the Emergency Department to speed up access to diagnostic procedures drastically.
“The golden hour is the 60 minutes following the trauma that is the most crucial when saving someone’s life. It could be anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes from when trauma occurs to when a patient actually arrives in the emergency department,” Mawji says.
“Cutting down the time it takes to receive care will save lives.”
Also, one operating room will be purpose-built and always available for trauma patients, to help avoid interrupting scheduled surgeries.
“Community support means that we’re able to save our friends and family,” Mawji says.
“When the community supports us, we’re able to give our frontline healthcare team the bells and whistles they need to offer the best care possible.”
