The Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation
The Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation was created to provide meaningful opportunities for people to contribute in improving health care within the service area of the University Hospital of Northern BC, Prince George. The community has responded in a very generous way.
Since the inception of the Foundation (June 18, 1991) more than $21 million has been raised through events, lotteries and donations from corporations, foundations and the citizens of our communities. The funds have been used to assist with the purchase of capital equipment and improvements and support of education of health care employees and medical staff.
They believe there is a spirit in the North which drives us to succeed - to determine our own well-being and sense of community.
