BMO makes $175,000 donation to RJH Patient Care Centre

Donation will purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technology

The BMO Financial Group pledged $175,000 to the Victoria Hospitals Foundation’s Building Care Together campaign to help purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technology for Royal Jubilee Hospital’s Patient Care Centre.

“It’s very inspiring to receive a commitment like this and we’re very grateful for the support of BMO Financial Group,” said Leslee Farrell, co-chair of the Building Care Together campaign, along with Ted Hughes.

“Time and time again, the generosity and involvement of our corporate partners have contributed to considerable health-care advances in our community.”

Shelly Jensen, vice-president, Vancouver Island District, BMO Bank of Montreal, presented the pledge to Farrell and Hughes.

“We understand that as Vancouver Island’s population continues to grow and age, the demands on our medical caregivers will also multiply along with the need for more complex and expensive health services.

“Our donation today to the Patient Care Centre at Royal Jubilee Hospital reinforces our commitment to supporting and strengthening health care services for all citizens in the region,” said Jensen.

The Building Care Together campaign has now received pledges totalling $11.3 million, and the campaign co-chairs are looking forward to making a number of announcements in the coming weeks, as part of the campaign’s goal to raise $25 million.
