Congrats to our Foundation prize winners!
In February, our VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation celebrated its Annual Open House at the Cordula & Günter Paetzold Centre. Thank you to all VCH staff who attended our event to kick off the Lunar New Year with food, fun and camaraderie. We enjoyed meeting new staff and catching up with familiar faces.
As part of the festivities, staff were encouraged to enter a draw to win one of three $10,000 prizes to go towards an established fund account to support the division, department or unit of their choice. We’re pleased to announce our three prize draw winners:
Dr. Michael Tsang, Clinical Assistant Professor, Division of Cardiology, UBC
Fund: Cardiology Staff Development Fund
Dr. Dianne Roscoe, Regional Division Head, Medical Microbiology & Infection Control, VGH
Fund: New Microbiology Development Fund
Carmen Phoon, Medical Technologist, Immunology Lab, VGH
Fund: New Immunology Lab Fund
Since 1980, VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation has raised over half a billion dollars for VGH, UBC Hospital, GF Strong, the VCH Ressearch Institute and Vancouver Community health services. We look forward to continuing to partner with you in 2017 to help fund critically needed equipment and innovative research to advance patient care in BC.
Thank you again to everyone who joined us to learn more about our work at the Foundation. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
