The community generosity continues to grow with another significant donation to the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation’s ‘Coming Home’ campaign.

The Foundation has announced a $1 million donation from the Boates Family Foundation to support the $18.25 million ‘Coming Home’ campaign for the new Beedie Long Term Care Centre to replace Mountain View Manor. The project includes a 200-bed Long Term Care Centre, a 32-space Day Program for Older Adults, and a stand-alone 49-space child daycare facility.

According to the Foundation, the Boates family personally and corporately, via Unitech Construction Management Ltd., have been supporting the Health Foundation for more than 20 years.

The Boates, through the Boates Family Foundation, strive to foster community growth to inspire change.

“We are very proud to be supporting the child daycare facility,” says Rick Boates. “Once completed, this new space will provide support to families in Delta and the dedicated hospital staff that care for our loved ones.”

The Foundation says this latest donation will support the new child daycare facility to be constructed on the Delta Hospital Campus of Care. This innovative stand-alone facility will feature multiple outdoor play spaces and create opportunities for intergenerational programming with long-term care residents.

“We are humbled by the generosity of the Boates Family,” added Hospital Foundation executive director Lisa Hoglund. “Their dedication to supporting Delta Hospital Campus of Care and the community of Delta is inspiring. This level of support will pave the way for a new service on our campus benefiting local families and hospital staff as well as fostering social connections to benefit seniors and children alike.”
