Our Role & Impact

Our vision is to inspire giving in support of the highest quality health care and with your generous support we can achieve this.

Health Care Heroes

Did you meet your Health Care Hero at LGH? They’re everywhere - from the clerk who checked you in with a smile to the nurse who took time to ensure you were comfortable. Our heroes are our exceptional staff and at the Foundation we work hard to recognize their commitment and caring. You can help by nominating your hero for a Health Care Hero Award with a donation.

NS Health Care Awards

Every day across the North Shore, there are people working in health care who go above and beyond their roles. Through the North Shore Health Care Awards for Outstanding Achievement, we encourage these exceptional staff to continue to make a difference and celebrate their contributions at a special ceremony held in January where we present four $1,000 awards in these categories:

  • Workplace Inspiration

North Shore Hospice & Palliative Project

For almost a decade, Lions Gate Hospital Foundation (LGHF) and North Shore Hospice Society (NSHS) have worked together to develop the programs and services needed to support patients living with life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses. Thanks to LGHF and NSHS, our community has its own free-standing hospice (North Shore Hospice), as well as programs and services that help palliative/hospice patients live their best lives to life's end.

Now, LGHF and NSHS, with the help of Vancouver Coastal Health, have formed a new fundraising partnership under a single brand - North Shore Hospice & Palliative Project. Their mission: to raise awareness and the funds needed to ensure every palliative/hospice patient has access to the services they need to live a full life with dignity and comfort.
