COMMUNICATIONS: READ ALL ABOUT US!

did you know?

The community of Delta recently voted the Delta Hospital Thrift Shop as the “BEST THRIFT SHOP IN DELTA”. Congratulations to our volunteers, our donators and all our customers!

The Delta Hospital Auxiliary would like to thank all its volunteers for the countless hours they contribute and the community of Delta who so strongly support our endeavors with their donations to our Thrift Shop.

The Delta Hospital Auxiliary Society annually presents $11,000 in bursaries to support students who have lived in Delta for the past two years and are continuing their post secondary studies in the Healthcare Field. The DHA has given out bursaries for over 20 years to assist students who are entering the health care field and for staff members to upgrade their skills.

In order to provide support to Delta Hospital and the rest of the Delta community, hundreds of volunteers contribute tens of thousands of hours every year at the auxiliary’s gift shop, Lifeline unit, Ladner thrift store and Courtyard Cafe. They’re also involved in such activities as making post-surgical pillows for mastectomy and other patients.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY…

“The Delta Hospital Auxiliary has been a great supporter of and a visionary partner for Delta Hospital over the past 30 years. They provide us with generous funding for the health care equipment that has allowed us to practice in a leading edge capacity. They provide comfort for patients through multiple care efforts which include everything from music therapy to sewing pillows for post surgical mastectomy patients. We have Auxiliary volunteers all through our facility helping patients and families feel welcome. For the past 30 years we have trusted our Auxiliary to be great partners and supporters of Delta Hospital and they have never disappointed us. This community has so much to be grateful for as we would not have the hospital we have today without the vision and support of the Auxiliary.”
