January 11, 2021

 

The Cowell Foundation, created, and funded, by the Cowell Family who also own, and operate, the Cowell Auto Group made a very generous gift of $250,000 to Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation toward Delta Hospital’s most critical equipment including surgical and long-term care needs.

 

The Surgical Day Care program at Delta Hospital is now one of the busiest day surgery sites in the Fraser Health region, performing close to 9000 surgeries each year across three operating and an endoscopy suite. The volume of surgeries performed at Delta Hospital continue to grow as Delta’s population ages. Delta has one of the largest seniors populations in Fraser Health which is expected to increase to 41% by 2024.  As such, supporting critical equipment for our long-term care facility is one of Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation’s top priorities. This exceptional donation from the Cowell Foundation will help ensure that critical equipment and resources are available for our surgical patients and long term care residents.  

 

“We are delighted to start off the New Year by announcing this extremely generous gift from the Cowell Foundation,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation.  “Ensuring that Delta Hospital has the necessary equipment to provide the best healthcare possible in our community is our top priority.  We could not do this without the generosity of donors, and we feel very fortunate that has the Cowell Foundation has chosen to support Delta Hospital.”
