The General Hospital Auxiliary has donated $110,000 this year to the Health Care Foundation. This funding will support programs that will improve the comfort, safety and well-being of patients and families visiting the Health Sciences Centre, Dr. L. A. Miller Centre and the Dr. Walter Templeman Health Care Centre. The General Hospital Auxiliary has been active for over 49 years as both fundraisers and hospital volunteers. Today, they fundraise the majority of their money through the operation of the Health Sciences Centre gift shop.
