Room to Grow Baby Calendars raise funds for the Partners in Caring Campaign, Maternity Project
Surrey BC – Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation, is very pleased with the results of the recent “Room to Grow” baby calendar.  Local photographer, Adrienne Thiessen along with the ACC Media Group presented the idea to the Foundation as a way to use their talents to raise money and awareness for the Maternity Renovation project.  With the help of local White Rock/South Surrey retailers who agreed to act as points of sale – the very cute calendars brought in over $1,300.  Many of the babies featured in the calendar were born at the Peace Arch Hospital.  Adrienne is already planning for the 2010 baby calendar.

The Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation launched the Partners in Caring Campaign, with the goal to raise $32 million for five priority projects.  The Campaign is progressing well – with $21 million received in pledges and donations.  Two of the five projects are now concluded; the renovation of the 5th & 6th Floor acute care units was completed in April 2008 and the MRI machine became fully operational as of February 2009.  The Foundation is now focused on the final three projects, a modernized Maternity Unit, the Integrated Centre for Health Improvement and finally the planning and development for a new Emergency Department.
