November 12, 2020

Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation is honoured to announce a remarkable $1 million gift from Gordie and Wendy Christoff. This generous donation is one of the largest gifts received by the Foundation in its 32-year history and is designated to support the future of seniors care at Delta Hospital.

 

Seniors currently make up 15-20% of Delta’s population – by 2024, this is expected to increase to 41%. This is one of the oldest patient populations in all of Fraser Health. Over the past several years, it has become increasingly evident that Delta’s seniors need additional and more readily accessible healthcare services in our community. In response, DHCH Foundation is prioritizing the future of seniors care by supporting needs that will enable the very best care, equipment, and resources for this important patient population.

 

“As Delta residents we feel very passionate about giving back to our community that we care so deeply about,” says Gordie and Wendy Christoff. “The seniors in Delta have helped create the wonderful community that we have the privilege of living in today. As such, it is essential to ensure they have access to the very best health care possible; services that provide them with the support and dignity they deserve at this stage of their lives.”
 

“We are extremely grateful to have received this generous gift from the Christoff family,” says Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation.  “This transformative donation will significantly help us plan for the future of exemplary seniors care in our community. Our goal is to provide Delta’s seniors with the opportunity to stay in the community they love, surrounded by friends, family, and exceptional healthcare services.”
