For 28 years, funds raised at Visions have gone directly towards purchasing equipment for Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals.
This past year, Visions gala raised funds to purchase and upgrade a patient monitoring system and other equipment that improve patient care for Vancouver Island residents. Our goal was to raise $725,000 and together, our event guests, sponsors and donors helped raise a record-breaking $800,000! It’s a remarkable testament to the generosity of the community we live in.
Thanks to hundreds of generous leaders in our community, our hospitals have benefited in a variety of areas of care and in multiple departments:
2018: Decision-making equipment in every area of care
2017: Cardiac equipment
2016: Surgery equipment
2015: Interventional angiography systems
2014: Transesophageal echocardiogram ultrasounds
2013: Patient Care Centre equipment: vital signs monitors, smart beds, vocera communications devices, wireless telemetry system
2012: Medication dispensing cabinets
Volunteering at Visions
Visions is driven by an incredible team of volunteers who provide their time, energy, and expertise. Thanks in part to their hard work, Visions 2018 raised $800,000 toward the purchase of leading-edge equipment for every area of care at Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals. Much of our success depends on the help of a dedicated core of individuals who are committed to lending their valuable time and expertise toward making this one of Victoria’s premiere galas! We are grateful to the many volunteers who make this evening possible. We are grateful.
