Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation is now the philanthropic arm of the Irene Thomas Hospice

Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation (DHCHF) is proud to announce that they are the philanthropic arm of the Delta Hospital Campus of Care which includes Mountain View Manor and most recently Irene Thomas Hospice.

 

The Irene Thomas Hospice is a 10-suite residence located on the Delta Hospital site, which is now operated by Fraser Health. Since taking over operations, Fraser Health Authority has made much needed upgrades and repairs to the building to offer the right environment and ensure appropriate staffing is in place to care for patients.

 

“Hospice care is a special kind of care that is important for patients and families” said Dr. Victoria Lee, president and CEO Fraser Health. “Hospice Care focuses on the quality of life for people and their caregivers who are experiencing an advanced, life-limiting illness. I am pleased the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation is now supporting the Irene Thomas Hospice through their philanthropic efforts.”

 

“We are honoured to let our community know that DHCHF is now responsible for all charitable efforts for the Irene Thomas Hospice,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation.  “We are very proud to be the philanthropic arm of the Delta Hospital Campus of Care to ensure that our community has access to the very best healthcare possible.”

 

Since 1988, DHCH Foundation has raised over $58 million to ensure the best healthcare possible for our community today and for future generations. To support the Irene Thomas Hospice 10-bed facility on the Delta Hospital Campus of Care, please visit www.dhchfoundation.ca.
