Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation



Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation (SPHHF)

Serving YOU, your FAMILY, your FRIENDS & your NEIGHBOURS

Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation’s mission is to provide up-to-date facilities, the latest technologies and innovative programs to promote the health and wellness of every person who calls Saanich Peninsula and the Southern Gulf Islands home.

Saanich Peninsula Hospital is a vital part of the community, where residents feel a strong sense of ownership and pride for their community hospital. Our caring donors have helped fund major upgrades and renovation projects, at the hospital and have helped to purchase hundreds of pieces of equipment, to better serve patients and their families.  With rapidly changing technology and treatment innovations, the support of donors is essential to our doctors and nurses having the latest equipment they need to provide the best care outcomes.  We rely on our hospital now more than ever, as access to primary care remains a challenge in communities here and throughout the province.  To help address the shortage of physicians, the Foundation’s groundbreaking Doctor of the Day program has been instrumental in securing locums to enhance patient care within the hospital.

In 2018, Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation Board Directors made the decision to expand the organization’s vision and mission beyond the hospital walls, leading to Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation (SPHHF).

SPHHF is honoured and proud to continue its collaboration with physicians in communities throughout the peninsula, and with the community’s ongoing support, we pledge to remain part of the solution to current and future healthcare challenges.

Our Impact

With the growing population of the Saanich Peninsula and surrounding areas, there is an increasing need for quality healthcare. Generous donor support has ensured that our community hospital has state-of-the-art equipment and remains staffed with highly trained specialists. Our hospital, with its three Operating Rooms, Emergency Room, Acute Care, Long-term Care and Palliative Care units is well respected for its quality of care and expertise and is a much sought after place for allied healthcare professionals to work.

During the 2018/19 annual fundraising campaign, the Foundation directed its efforts towards the shortage of family doctors and its consequences for the community and the hospital.  The campaign received remarkable success as the community rallied together to show its support for healthcare on the peninsula.  Because of the Foundation’s support, two medical clinics opened in Sidney and Brentwood Bay, attracting 25 physicians and providing thousands of patients with access to much-needed healthcare on the peninsula.

Since a group of concerned citizens founded it in 1985, Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation has raised more than $75 million for a multitude of projects.

With your support, we will continue this legacy.

Make Caring Your Legacy

Our goal at Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation is to be the champion of compassionate and sustainable healthcare for every person in the community, now and for generations to come.

We recognize one of the most significant decisions anyone will make, is the legacy they leave and how to structure their estate to benefit others. It takes a great deal of thought, care, planning and advice on how to best provide for descendants, family and friends, while also making a positive and lasting difference to the world we leave behind.

Many of the funds raised through legacy gifts, go toward the purchase of much needed equipment for Saanich Peninsula Hospital’s Emergency Department, Operating Rooms and other areas throughout the hospital.  This enables our doctors and staff to better diagnose and treat patients, ensuring the highest levels of care and best possible outcomes for everyone, now and for generations to come.

We are truly grateful for legacy gifts – they ensure Saanich Peninsula Hospital will remain at the heart of community healthcare for generations to come.
