Dear Friends and Supporters,

As our community negotiates the unprecedented changes in our lives, the outpouring of support to our healthcare professionals and other essential workers has been overwhelming. From the 7 o’clock cheer, to the food and coffee brought to the staff at our hospital and the monetary donations made to support the highest level of care, our community has stepped up. The Squamish Hospital Foundation has been working alongside the staff at Squamish General Hospital to best prepare our community for the potential influx of patients requiring care because of Covid-19, coordinating the food donations, identifying potential equipment needs for the hospital and being the conduit to the community for donations of all kinds.

I want to express my deepest gratitude to you for your continued support of the work of the Squamish Hospital Foundation. The donations that have been made are directly impacting the care that is provided at the Hospital during this crisis, but we are also looking beyond this pandemic to ensure that our community receives the highest quality of care while keeping our healthcare workers safe.

From the smallest of donations to the largest, your contributions are helping our healthcare workers. I would like to recognize 100 Women Who Care (Squamish), the Rotary Club of Squamish and the Squamish General Hospital Auxiliary for their quick support of this work, Bob Fast and family for their very significant contribution, and Jaime Morum for her assistance in coordinating with donors and the Foundation.

Your contributions to the Foundation will ensure that our dedicated health care team at Squamish General Hospital has the resources they need to provide the very best care possible at this time. The needs of our Hospital are evolving and the Foundation will continue to support our frontline health care workers in every way we can. For more information and ways you can help, please visit

Finally, I would like to extend my thanks on behalf of the Foundation to all of the front-line health care workers, support workers in our healthcare facilities, grocers, delivery drivers, emergency response workers and all those who are working to keep our communities moving.

Again, we encourage you to take every measure to stay healthy. Thank you for supporting the Squamish Hospital Foundation and those on the front lines in this pandemic.

With generous donations from our community, the Squamish Hospital Foundation has purchased a new Glidescope for use at Squamish General Hospital. The Glidescope will be an important tool for our healthcare teams in our fight against Covid-19. The Glidescope assists in difficult airway management facilitating for smoother intubation yet allowing the healthcare teams to visualize the airway with greater physical distancing than traditional intubation techniques, thus providing some protection for our frontline healthcare workers. Once our community has made it through this current crisis, the Glidescope will be of continued use in emergent situations requiring intubation.
The Squamish Hospital Foundation would like to specifically thank 100 Women Who Care Squamish, Rotary Club of Squamish,and the Squamish General Hospital Auxiliary Society  for their quick contributions to the purchase of the Glidescope in these difficult times.
