They are humans first, who put other humans first.
They care for the vulnerable, injured, and sick—you, your neighbour, your spouse, your parent.
More than 8,400 caregivers and staff work around the clock at Royal Jubilee, Victoria General, and Gorge Road hospitals. Their commitment and dedication to our community inspires us every day.
These are their stories.
#HumansFirst is dedicated to sharing the stories from behind our hospitals’ frontlines. These stories remind us that those who provide care and keep the lights on in our hospitals also have lives outside of them. They have family and friends, they enjoy hobbies and interests, and they have all lived through their own personal triumphs and heartbreaks. Like all of us, they’re human, and they have a story to tell.
Impacting care across Vancouver Island.
Our caregivers impact Island communities far and wide. Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals are the Island’s two largest hospitals. As such, they are our referral centres for specialty, advanced and critical care. Over 860,000 Vancouver Island and Gulf Island residents rely on our Victoria hospital heroes.
When you support the Victoria Hospitals Foundation, you’re ensuring the best care for your neighbours—near and far across the Island.
