High Priority Needs
“Good health is something that we often take for granted. We tend not to think much about it until something happens to us…or one of our loved ones” said Dr. Laura Kelly, Emergency Physician, RMH.

New and updated equipment is required every year to ensure that our physicians, surgeons, nurses and health care staff can provide the best possible care to the 95,000 residents in our communities.

Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation is proud to invest in your health by funding several pieces of urgently needed, life saving equipment each year. In addition, we support a number of community initiatives that support a healthy lifestyle and healthy choices.

Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation's values are:

  • To improve the health of the citizens of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows
  • Encourage efficient use of community resources
  • Demonstrate innovative approaches and techniques to solve community health issues, and build capacity.
  • Address the root causes of health issues in our communities
  • Promote cooperation and partnership among organizations to minimize the potential for duplication of services
  • Strengthen an organization’s capacity to be sustainable

Please, partner with us. Your donations will benefit the entire community.
