The Gordon and Leslie Diamond Family

The Gordon and Leslie Diamond Family has helped BC Women's Hospital + Health Centre achieve milestones in the specialized care of women and newborns that would not have been possible without their remarkable and enduring support.

This local family has provided visionary support for our hospital for the past 25 years. When we asked the Diamonds for help with the Newborn Intensive Care Unit Campaign, they did not hesitate. 

The Diamonds’ inaugural $3 million donation set the pace for others.  As leadership donors, they are helping BC Women’s achieve its vision to be a global leader in the provision of world-class care for critically ill newborns.

The funds raised through the Newborn NICU Campaign have enabled BC Women’s to transform the unit into four neighbourhoods –  each is designed to meet the special needs of babies and their families, and each has its own dedicated care team.

The Diamond Family NICU Neighbourhood is designed and equipped for the high-risk, critically ill babies from across the province that need the most advanced neonatal care. Thanks to the Diamond family, this neighbourhood will offer the latest in respiratory support and other life-sustaining equipment in an environment that supports the whole family.

Since 1989, the Diamond family has provided generous funding support for many programs and special initiatives at BC Women’s. Our patients and families have benefited from their caring and meaningful support.  Their significant investment in our hospital has also inspired others to give. BC Women’s is fortunate to count the Diamonds as long-time friends.
