$3 Million Donation to “Coming Home” Campaign

Spencer Reid

On January 22nd 2024, the Auxiliary made a record $3 million donation to the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation’s ‘Coming Home’ Campaign, toward the Long-Term Care Centre. What an accomplishment!

“The Auxiliary is thrilled to support such a meaningful campaign to build a new long-term care centre for Delta’s seniors. We are truly grateful for the dedication and entrepreneurial commitment of our volunteers that made this gift possible.” President Cathy Bayley

The new 200 bed long-term care centre, owned and operated by Fraser Health Authority, will replace the 92 beds at Delta Hospital’s current facility, Mountain View Manor. The new facility will be named Beedie Long Term Care Centre and will include social and recreational spaces found in a typical home, such as a living room, dining room, activity space and access to the outdoors. In addition, the project will add a 32-space adult day program. An innovative stand-alone 49-space child daycare facility will also be constructed and create opportunities for intergenerational programming with long-term care residents.
