Support Exceptional Healthcare For Cowichan

The Cowichan District Hospital Foundation has been raising funds in support of Cowichan District Hospital and Cairnsmore Place for nearly 40 years. The generosity of our donors helps bring world-class equipment to our area, which can help reduce wait times, improve patient experiences, allow for less invasive procedures, support staff recruitment and retention, reduce patient travel, and more.

Recently we committed to purchasing over 250 items for Cowichan District Hospital such as automated dispensing cabinets, maternity patient monitors, chair alarms, slings, transfer belts, children’s items for the Emergency Department, as well as an activity bus, new sterilization equipment, and medication carts for Cairnsmore Place. We are so grateful for the generosity of our community.

This year, we are kindly asking you to consider supporting our initiatives in one of our three main areas:

  • Area of Greatest Need: With construction for Cowichan’s new hospital underway, we are in a transition phase where we need to continue to support our current hospital, while also planning and preparing for the future. By choosing to donate to the Area of Greatest Need, you ensure that your funds are used for the most crucial needs now, for Cowichan District Hospital, Cairnsmore Place, and for our New Hospital.
  • Cairnsmore Place: This fund supports our initiatives at Cairnsmore Place, the Island Health long term care facility in Duncan, including medical equipment, activities, and entertainment for residents.
  • New Hospital Fund: This fund will contribute to cutting-edge medical equipment for Cowichan’s new hospital, which is expected to open to patients in spring 2027.

As well, we invite community members and organizations to consider a naming opportunity within the new hospital. As a donor, you can make a positive impact on the healthcare of our community, while also leaving a lasting legacy in your name, your organization’s name, or in memory of a loved one. Connect with our office to learn more.

Please consider donating to the Foundation — your contribution can make a huge impact for patients and their loved ones.

We all use the hospital at some point, whether it’s the beginning of our life or at the end of our life, and sometimes in between… all of us use it. We need a strong hospital for a strong community.” – Daniel Varga, Foundation Supporter
