Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation is proud to recognize our 2020 Champions of Philanthropy.
By demonstrating their philanthropic commitment and making important contributions in support of the Foundation’s mission, the following members of Royal Columbian Hospital have distinguished themselves by encouraging their peers to give, inspiring their networks to engage and making their own charitable gift.
- As a key connection for the Foundation to the hospital’s interventional cardiology program, Dr. Albert Chan has regularly assisted the Foundation in developing donor support for the cardiac cath lab. Dr. Chan has facilitated introductions to grateful patients who have then made substantial donations, and he has helped the Foundation share numerous remarkable patient stories that have raised awareness about the exceptional work of the cardiac team.
- Among the most enthusiastic and recognizable ambassadors for Royal Columbian, emergency department nurse Gary Kainth uses his warm personality and natural charm to draw people in. Always ready and able to help the Foundation, Gary consistently finds ways to encourage support from others for our fundraising initiatives. His image has been a part of many of the Foundation’s promotional campaigns.
- Royal Columbian Hospital’s respiratory therapy team is among the most involved departments with the Foundation, and Tracey Miller’s leadership is an important reason why. She and her colleagues are always available to support our charitable work, and they do a fantastic job of demonstrating the role of respiratory therapy in the hospital. With Tracey’s invaluable assistance, we have introduced many donors to the needs of the department.
- Dr. Grover Wong stands out because of his passion for Royal Columbian Hospital as well as his firm belief in giving back. The family physician is a long-time member of the Foundation’s Partners in Care monthly giving program. He’s also been recognized by grateful patients on a number of occasions through the STAR program. Dr. Wong’s devotion to the hospital and its maternity program is highly effective during conversations with donors.
