Caring Spirits: Emergency Department

Whether faced with shortness of breath or a severe injury, patients coming to our Emergency Department need quality care as quickly as possible. The Emergency team at Royal Jubilee Hospital diagnoses and treats more than 50,000 patients every year.

This hardworking medical team recently has received a Caring Spirit award! A former patient who experienced outstanding medical assistance on more than one occasion decided to honour his caregivers with a donation to the Victoria Hospitals Foundation. This donation will help fund new medical equipment that will be a huge benefit for future patients in the Emergency Department.


The Caring Spirit program gives grateful patients and their loved ones the opportunity to pay tribute to doctors, nurses and other hospital caregivers by making a donation of any amount in their name.

Please remember to tell us your Caring Spirit’s first and last name and which hospital and department they work in.

Caregivers are so touched when they are named as Caring Spirits. They will receive recognition from their supervisors and peers, a special Caring Spirit pin and a letter of congratulations that doesn’t disclose the amount of your gift.

Your gift will be used for priority medical equipment that improves care for other patients. Caring Spirit has funded hundreds of important pieces of medical equipment throughout Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals. It’s a wonderful way to support our hospitals and recognize excellent care.
