A business club based in Richmond recently donated $25,000 to fund Richmond Hospital’s new medical imaging centre.

Vancouver Diamond Lions Club, a long-standing supporter of the Richmond Hospital Foundation, raised the funds during its charity gala in July.

“Our members value the role that Richmond Hospital plays in maintaining a healthy community, and we want to help make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families in need,” said Vivian Chung, president of Vancouver Diamond Lions Club.

“We are honoured to support such an important campaign to help ensure Richmond Hospital has the latest medical imaging tools to provide the best care possible.”

Richmond Hospital has currently achieved 90 per cent of its goal to raise $25 million for the upcoming Milan & Maureen Ilich Medical Imaging Centre, which will be at the heart of the hospital’s new acute care tower.

It is hoping to purchase the latest imaging technologies including CT scanners, MRI machines, mammography machines, SPECT machines, x-ray machines and interventional radiology machines.
