For 30 years, funds raised at Visions have gone directly towards purchasing equipment for Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals.
In 2022. Visions raised funds to support the purchase of a new Automated Chemistry Line for the Royal Jubilee Hospital. The current Chemistry Line is the most-piece of equipment in our hospitals and processes over 3 million blood samples and other tests every year; however, it is over 20 years old making it the oldest one in British Columbia. This current line is prone to frequent breakdowns and performs 1,000-1,500 tests each day; the new Automated Chemistry Line performs 1,200 tests every hour. Through the remarkable generosity of our guests, sponsors, and donors, we were able to raise $1.5 million at Visions to help fund this vital piece of equipment. Thanks to their support, thousands of patients from across the Island will benefit every single day.
Thanks to hundreds of generous leaders in our community, our hospitals have benefited in a variety of areas of care:
Upgraded Patient Monitoring System & Decision-Making Equipment
Interventional Angiography Systems
Transesophageal Echocardiogram Ultrasounds
Patient Care Centre Equipment
Our Steering Committee is an integral part of Visions. We are thankful for their leadership and support with event details, sponsorships, and securing Live and Silent auction donations.
Steering Committee Members:
Darlene Hollstein (Chair), Charlotte Salomon, Mary Lou Newbold, Jane Johnston, Carolyn Harries-Duncan, Ruth Mogensen, Carrie Knox, Carly Russell-Huntley, Cathy Scott and Krystal Hanson
“We look forward to joining our community once again in 2022 to honour our caregivers, and to raise funds to support their vital work. The 30th anniversary of Victoria’s premiere fundraising gala event is an incredible milestone, and we believe it’s important we celebrate our giving community together.”
