Great West Life Pledges $100,000

Great-West, London Life and Canada Life has pledged $100,000 to the Building Care Together (BCT) campaign. The announcement came March 28 during the campaign wrap-up event at Royal Jubilee Hospital.

 This gift will support the purchase of leading-edge technology for geriatric mental health services at the Royal Jubilee Hospital Patient Care Centre. Funds will be used to purchase wireless communications systems, called Voceras, which allow patients to speak directly with their caregivers.

“We’re very grateful that Great-West, London Life and Canada Life has shown such a strong commitment to the older adults in our community,” said BCT Campaign Co-Chair Leslee Farrell. “The Patient Care Centre is a Centre for Excellence in Seniors Care and is the first hospital in the world to be designed specifically with the needs of seniors in mind. Having these high-quality communications tools to help medical teams provide the best possible care is paramount.”

Andre Vincent, Regional Sales Director, Insurance – West Region was on hand to make the announcement on behalf of Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life.

 “Our company values making a meaningful contribution to the organizations in the communities where we live and work,” said Vincent. “As a leading Canadian insurance organization, we also take a special interest in initiatives that address the health and wellness of Canadians. Helping ensure our seniors have access to leading-edge technology and the best care available is an important priority we’re proud to support through the $25 million Building Care Together campaign.”

We are very thankful for Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life’s support in reaching our $25 million goal.
