Victoria General Hospital Auxiliary was founded at the opening of the hospital in the 80s and charter members still participate. It's mandate is to be a fund-raiser for the hospital to purchase equipment and amenities each year. It started with a project to provide car seats for the new-borns, building the helipad, buying the front doors, and totals over three million dollars spent.
Poinsettias for Patients started in 2010 and each year excellent plants are sold for Christmas to businesses, clubs, churches, and individuals as decoration and gifts for public places and homes. Besides buying an item for the hospital, Poinsettia Santas give patients stuck in hospital over the holidays an anonymous gift of a poinsettia for their rooms. Buyers of Christmas plants often add a couple to their orders.
The Auxiliary knitters provide the Shop with baby layettes, caps, booties, etc
The Oasis@3North: A PROJECT OF THE AUXILIARY is the transformation of the rooftop at 3 north into a place to relax or pace for patients, visitors, volunteers, and staff.
The plants in the cafeteria and the concourse or provided and maintained by the Auxiliary.
A most essential project was getting public Wifi so patients and visitors and volunteers can get email.
