Past Campaign: In A Heartbeat

At Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals, miracles happen every day. This is especially true for our cardiac patients.

Every year, over 200,000 of our community members go through a cardiac assessment at Vancouver Island hospitals, and over 6,300 cardiac procedures are performed on men and women of all ages. While many attest to the uncertainty and hardship that accompany the news of a cardiac condition, our patients take comfort in the fact they have access to a world-class cardiac program.

Over the past 30 years, the Heart Health program at Royal Jubilee Hospital has grown into a national leader and pioneer in cardiac care. The multi-disciplinary teams driving this Heart Health program have forged a culture of excellence and innovation that allows patients to quickly receive the most up-to-date procedures, recover faster and go home to their families sooner. The program has attracted physicians from around the world and turned Royal Jubilee Hospital into a referral centre for cardiac patients throughout Vancouver Island and across British Columbia.

But to perform the latest cardiac procedures, our Heart Health teams need the best equipment.

Through our Campaign for Cardiac Care, we aim to raise $3.2 million to fund 34 pieces of leading–edge equipment in seven different areas of cardiac care.

A gift to this campaign will equip our Heart Health teams with the tools they need to ensure patients have the best outcomes possible. Help miracles happen by making a gift today.
