The Bath family, owners of SSR Cedar in Surrey, are enthusiastic supporters of Surrey Memorial Hospital.
The Atwal Family siblings share why their family and businesses choose to support the Surrey Hospital Foundation and Surrey Memorial Hospital.
We are grateful for their commitment to community, and ongoing support.
From babies to seniors, many patients need extra special care here at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
Surrey residents Carly Pinchin and Prabjot Gill lovingly prepared 36 handmade premie packages for our very young patients. Each of the packages contains a hand-pressed onesie, organic baby wash, and homemade cards. I’m Coming Home packages are for the little folks who are on their way home with their families, while the Little Human, Big Impact are thoughtfully prepared for those who will never leave the hospital.
To Surrey With Love, from these two kind young ladies.
For Dale Lutz and Don Murray, giving back to the place they call home goes without question.
Lutz and Murray are the co-founders of Safe Software, which began as a start-up in a Whalley basement. It is now one of BC’s largest software companies.
Several years ago, Dale’s teenager became ill and required treatment only available in Vancouver at the time. He recalls how the extra travel put more stress on an already trying situation. “It’s stressful when you have a sick child,” Lutz said. “But then to throw on top of that an additional commute, especially when you have other kids at home you’re looking after: it’s exhausting.”
In 2018, Safe Software supported the community with a $1 million donation to Surrey Hospital Foundation. This gift kicked off the $6 million fundraising campaign to transform the Children’s Health Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
Since the Children’s Health Centre was built in 2001, Surrey’s population has increased over 50%, yet the footprint of the Centre has not. The transformation project will allow for more rooms for outpatient clinics, a dedicated space for children pre and post-surgery and a comfortable family waiting area with a nourishment centre.
“Being a part of something to help people in Surrey really appealed to Don and I and our families,” said Lutz.
What better way to commemorate a special occasion, than by making a generous donation to your community!
The team at Nanak Foods recently supported the Children’s Health Centre renewal campaign with a $50,000 donation, in celebration of their 20 year anniversary.
What a wonderful gift that will impact so many in the community where you do business. Thank you!
Over the last 10 years, the kind-hearted South Asian community has contributed more than $6.5 million to Surrey Memorial Hospital during the Gurpurab Radiothon hosted by RedFM. We have celebrated this generosity with four significant namings; the Guru Nanak Emergency Department Front Entrance, the Mata Tripta Family Birthing Unit, the Guru Ram Das Ji Stroke Unit and the Dukh Bhanjan Kidney Centre.
This year, the community donated $543,000 to purchase innovative equipment, new technology for patient education, and to enhance family-centred care in Surrey Memorial Hospital’s recently expanded, and newly named, Sarbat Coronary Care Unit.
What a wonderful way to support one’s community! Thank you to the community for their investment in health care. It has a direct impact on thousands of patients and local families.
