Millions have been raised, but more is needed as the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation (DHCHF) fundraises to help transform long-term care in Delta.

Following last summer’s announcement by Fraser Health that the health authority would construct and operate a new 200-bed long-term care community on the vacant land at the Delta Hospital campus the foundation committed to raising $18.25 million.

They launched their largest ever fundraising campaign, “Coming Home” and have since received a record $5 million donation from Ryan and Cindy Beedie, $3 million from the Delta Hospital Auxiliary Society, and many additional large gifts to help them grow closer to their ambitious campaign goal.

“I am thrilled to announce through extraordinary community support, we have raised just over $13 million,” said Foundation executive director Lisa Hoglund. “Our donors have shown tremendous commitment towards this transformative project. We are inspired by the campaign’s success so far and looking forward to continued support from our community to help us reach our goal.”

Delta Hospital’s current long-term care facility, Mountain View Manor (MVM), opened in 1977, and currently has capacity for 92 older adults. Over its history, MVM has had only minor upgrades, making the facility outdated and insufficient to meet the needs of the community.

“We are working on a revolutionary care community for seniors on the Delta Hospital campus, which is possible thanks to the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation and its generous donors,” added Cathy Wiebe, executive director, Delta and White Rock/South Surrey Health Services and Delta and Peace Arch Hospitals. “Progress is underway as preparations for construction commence at the site, promising to redefine senior living standards. This community will prioritize comfort and dignity and will soon offer our seniors a proud place to call home.”

The new Beedie Long Term Care Centre will replace MVM. The project is in the procurement phase with construction expected to begin in 2025 and conclude in 2027.
