Auxiliary donates $66K to Abbotsford Regional Hospital

Money will go towards ER expansion, equipment and programs

The auxiliary to the Abbotsford Regional Hospital (ARH) has donated $66,000 to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF).

Of that money, $53,000 will go towards the ER expansion at ARH, $10,000 will be donated for programming at the Cottage-Worthington Pavilion and the remainder will go towards greatly needed equipment.

“The foundation works very closely with the auxiliary,” said Liz Harris, executive director of the FVHCF. “We share the same passion and vision for health care. They are terrific partners.”

The foundation raises funds for vital equipment and programs funded or endorsed by Fraser Health. It serves Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.
