In 2013, the Auxiliary raised funds to support care and research to improve the well-being of women and newborns. Their donations were designated toward urgently needed Anesthesia equipment; pain-relief "toolkits" for Labour and Delivery Nurses; and the Auxiliary’s Research Endowment Fund.
The generosity and compassion of the Auxiliary is making an important difference for women and families, including ensuring access to the best medical equipment. The “toolkits” mean new possibilities for BC Women's excellent nurses to make mom comfortable and happy on the big day. While supporting research means exciting new potential for bright researchers to seek new knowledge that will inform and improve patient care.
These vital initiatives would not be possible without the generosity of the Auxiliary to BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre.
