We believe in giving back to the communities we build homes in, and contributing to their growth and success — it’s part of our Building Better Cities values.

Ten years ago, Qualico made its first donation to the Surrey Hospitals Foundation — and it started a legacy enhancing healthcare in our community.

That first donation of $300,000 was matched dollar-for-dollar by Jim Pattison and used to equip the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre with lifesaving diagnostic equipment. To recognize the support and honour us for being the first major donor in 2011, the Foundation named the Centre’s lobby after Qualico.

We are proud to announce another donation made to the Surrey Hospitals Foundation by Qualico. This year, we are continuing our legacy by gifting $350,000 over three years — to be matched by Mr. Pattison again. Our donation will be used towards the purchase of three new cardiac ultrasounds for the 19 very busy cardiologists.

The last 18 months have been difficult for all of us, but especially for healthcare workers and frontline staff. We hope this contribution helps make their jobs a little easier and assists with providing Surrey’s rapidly growing population with the best care possible.

Our long-term vision at StreetSide and Qualico is to continue to partner with these essential organizations in our communities. We build homes — but we also build healthy communities.
