Thank you

August 6, 2019

VolunteersWomen’s College Hospital (WCH) and Women's College Hospital Foundation (WCHF) extend their deepest gratitude to the Association of Volunteers (AoV) for its generous ongoing support of services, broad range of equipment and program needs that directly impact the lives of our patients.

Over the past century, the hospital’s AoV alone has raised over $5 million toward the most pressing needs of WCH. Today, we are grateful for the roughly 200 volunteers that generously donate their time to welcoming visitors, assisting patients and being an invaluable resource to our clinicians and staff. Each year, our volunteers contribute over 25,000 hours of service.

In January 2019, the Association’s incredible gift of $20,000 – which was fully matched by private donors – enabled the purchase of three state-of-the-art flexible video cystoscopes for use in the hospital’s new Transition-Related Surgery (TRS) Program – the first program of its kind at a public hospital in Canada. Raised through grassroots initiatives such as book sales, raffles and events, this wonderful gift reflects the Association’s enduring dedication to rallying the community around the mission and vision of Women’s College Hospital.

Thank you once again to the entire Association of Volunteers for your ongoing dedication to our hospital and for making a remarkable impact on how we're creating a healthier, more equitable world.
