Your raffle ticket purchase has the power to help fund sophisticated technology and new equipment that enables maternity and pediatrics teams at Victoria General Hospital (VGH) to carry out delicate and highly specialized treatments.

VGH is the referral centre for pediatric and maternity care on Vancouver Island and is staffed with talented caregivers—experts in perinatal services, maternity care, and general pediatrics. VGH is also home to one of BC’s four high-level neonatal intensive care (NICU) and one of two pediatric intensive care (PICU) units. We are so fortunate that less than 2% of cases are transferred to the Mainland for care.

The Victoria Hospitals Foundation (VHF) enables community donations to support the purchase of medical equipment, special projects, education, and research at Royal Jubilee, Victoria General, and Gorge Road hospitals. Since 1989, VHF has raised more than $180 million to benefit Victoria hospitals.
