In the ER, a Little Privacy Goes a Long Way

Would you like a little privacy when you’re in the emergency room? Unfortunately, the current ER design is like an open-concept house, and you can easily overhear conversations happening in other areas. “There’s no real private place in our department to talk about your issues. If we can redesign within the confines of the foundation that we already have to make it more efficient, to put a few more beds in, to give some patients a bit more privacy, that’s what I would like to eventually see in this department,” says Dr. Wickham, lead emergency physician. That’s why CAHCF is now raising money for ER renovations and expansion. Please help us meet our target of $4.5-$4.8 million.

Endowment Fund – Your Legacy, Your Healthcare

One of our biggest successes is the Foundation’s $1,000,000 plus Endowment Fund designed to provide funds for the Foundation and hospital long into the future.

The Foundation has adopted the principle of building an Endowment Fund to help guarantee the longevity of the Foundation to benefit the hospital and to augment the revenue that is raised specifically to cover the Foundation’s overhead. This endowment fund has been established with the Edmonton Community Foundation.

As a donor, you can establish a named endowment under the Foundation’s endowment to act as a lasting legacy in your family’s name.

Help us reach our $5,000,000 goal for the Endowment Fund. Your legacy will help ensure that funding will be available for excellent health care in the Bow Valley for years to come.

Please contact our executive director, Soulafa, who can assist you in making sure your legacy wishes are honoured:
