More doctors from St. Paul’s have stepped forward to help fund the construction of the new St. Paul’s.  

Doctors from the Departments of Medicine and Surgery, and the Teck Emergency Centre are collectively donating $3.5 million. That builds on the $2.55 million contributed by doctors in other programs earlier this spring.

“When we come to work, we will have access to a fully integrated medical community, a purpose-built space, and leading-edge technologies and tools. We will be supported like never before to do what we love to do – heal and save lives, and help keep our communities healthy,” says Dr. Erin Kenny, Emergency Physician.

The total contribution from St. Paul’s staff is now more than $6.5 million, making this hospital staff campaign one of the largest in Canadian history.

And they’re not done fundraising.

Their goal: 80 per cent of medical staff donating to this campaign. Achieving this level of support from hundreds of medical staff members will reinforce their history of dedication to St. Paul’s – where they have dedicated their careers – and establish their legacy at the new St. Paul’s Hospital.

These doctors are proud to share their support for a unique campus devoted to exceptional patient-centred care, world-class medical education, and ground-breaking research. It is history-in-the-making, and held up as the single most significant opportunity of their professional lives.
