Thank you to the Dr. Kindree golf tournament sponsors & individual players:

Your valued support in 2018 made a significant impact on the lives of patients and their families by enhancing the delivery and quality of healthcare received in the Sea to Sky Corridor. As 2018 comes to a close, we are extremely grateful for your generosity and the difference it makes.

The big fundraising goal for 2018 was to provide new ultrasound technology to SGH. This new machine will increase the types of diagnostic imaging that can be done locally in Squamish; from pre-natal ultrasounds to echo-cardiograms. With a total of $136,000.00 being raised through the Dr. Kindree golf tournament ($70,000.00 from the tournament) and with generous donations from the community the foundation is excited to succeed in enhancing ultrasound services at Squamish General Hospital.

Some of the items that have also been purchased in 2018 include:

  • $10,000 for equipment at Hilltop House-Allowing safe transfer of residents from bed to chair and equipment for ensuring a level of comfort and protection from skin breakdown.
  • $1,400.00 CPAP Machine
  • $1,300.00 towards a breast pump for the maternity ward at SGH.
  • $4,000.00 in nurse education.

Again, on behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to thank you for your support of the Squamish Hospital Foundation and wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season.

We are already looking forward to a successful fundraising year in 2019 and hope to see you all at the 2019 Dr. Kindree Golf Tournament.
