Surrey Hospital Foundation (SHF) works to improve the quality of healthcare in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley area. It grants money to three health centres in the community. First, it grants to Surrey Memorial Hospital which includes one of the busiest maternity units in the country. Second, it grants to Jim Pattison Outpatient Care & Surgery Centre with 100 exam rooms and six operating rooms. Finally, SHF grants to Czorny Alzheimer Centre which supports 72 dementia patients. 

With its grants, Surrey Hospital Foundation funds capital equipment & projects, research & education, and patient comfort items.  

In F2022, the foundation allocated 69% of funding to capital equipment and projects. Overall, SHF funded 376 pieces of equipment. In addition, it funded a microsurgical lymphatic reconstruction program to teach doctors new techniques for work related to lymph nodes. This program helped doctors perform two new microsurgeries in F2022.

In F2022, SHF worked with BMO Financial Groups to give out the BMO Education Grant worth $250,000. This grant went to improve training for 25 pediatric nurses.
