Enriching the Heart of Northern Health Care
Who Are We?
We are a registered charity that was established in 1985. Our Foundation is governed by 15 volunteer Board of Director members. We are separate and independent from the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region. Our office, which operates on the main floor of the Victoria Regional Hospital, has three full time employees: Executive Director, Office Manager and Fund Development Assistant. Our entire mission is to raise funds to purchase essential medical equipment for the Victoria Regional Hospital and it’s two attached long term care facilities, the Herb Bassett Home and Pineview Terrace. To date we have raised over 15.7 million dollars. Our funding has touched many areas of the hospital over the years including intensive care, pediatrics and nursery, palliative care, endoscopy unit, emergency room, operating room, mental health and more. We work very hard to raise money to assist our doctors, nurses and staff with the best equipment so they can provide a gold standard level of care for our families and friends who need our hospital.
What Do We Do?
With the support of our community, our Foundation raises money through special events, radiothons, third party events, major gifts, planned giving, memorial donations and donor development. We build strong trusting relationships within our community in order to establish a strong foundation for future generations who will need our hospital. Some of our signature events include our annual OK Hjertaas Memorial Golf Classic every August that has been raising money for the hospital since 1998. Our annual Give a Little Life Day 12 hour radiothon each December is one of our community’s most beloved events and raised over $400,000 for Intensive Care in 2015. Our inaugural Doctor’s Gala in April 2016 raised $42,000 for ENT surgery!
