Coming Home Campaign Update

April 11, 2024
“Coming Home” Campaign needs community support to complete ambitious fundraising goal

Last summer, Fraser Health Authority announced that they will construct and operate a new 200-bed long-term care community on the vacant land at the Delta Hospital Campus. Shortly thereafter, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation (DHCH Foundation) committed to raising $18.25 million and launched their largest ever fundraising campaign, ‘Coming Home: A Campaign to Transform Long Term Care in Delta.’
Since the campaign launch, DHCH Foundation has received a record $5 million donation from Ryan and Cindy Beedie, an exceptional $3 million from the Delta Hospital Auxiliary Society, and many additional large gifts to help them grow closer to their ambitious campaign goal.

“I am thrilled to announce that, as of today, through extraordinary community support, we have raised just over $13 million towards our Coming Home Campaign,” says, Lisa Hoglund, Executive Director, Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. “Our donors have shown tremendous commitment towards this transformative project. We are inspired by the campaign’s success so far and looking forward to continued support from our community to help us reach our goal. We all have a role to play in helping our seniors come home to a place they deserve. We are incredibly grateful that our community has shown compassionate support towards this meaningful project.”
Delta Hospital’s current long-term care facility, Mountain View Manor (MVM), opened in 1977, and currently has capacity for 92 older adults. Over its history, MVM has had only minor upgrades, making the facility outdated and insufficient to meet the needs of the community.

“We are working on a revolutionary care community for seniors on the Delta Hospital campus, which is possible thanks to the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation and its generous donors,” Cathy Wiebe, Executive Director, Delta and White Rock/South Surrey Health Services and Delta and Peace Arch Hospitals. “Progress is underway as preparations for construction commence at the site, promising to redefine senior living standards. This community will prioritize comfort and dignity and will soon offer our seniors a proud place to call home.”

Owned and operated by Fraser Health Authority, the new Beedie Long Term Care Centre will replace Mountain View Manor. The project is in the procurement phase with construction expected to begin in 2025 and conclude in 2027. The long-term care community will include social and recreational spaces found in a typical home, such as a living room, dining room, activity space and access to the outdoors. In addition, the project will add a 32-space adult day program. An innovative, stand-alone 49-space child daycare facility will also be constructed and create opportunities for intergenerational programming with long term care residents.
