Since its opening 25 years ago, the Whistler Health Care Centre (WHCC) has seen a significant increase in trauma and trauma related injuries. An aging and increased population combined with an increase in high-risk sporting activity has put significant pressure on the existing system.
The campaign to raise funds for the upgrades at the WHCC began at the end of 2019, and is the largest single campaign undertaken by the Whistler Health Care Foundation (WHCF). Partnering with Vancouver Coastal Health, the Whistler Health Care Foundation is raising the funds required to increase the usable size and improve the functionality of the current trauma rooms so the medical staff can continue to provide the best care to our most critical patients.
Thanks to this impactful donation from 100 Women Whistler, the WHCF is one step closer to their $1.5M goal to complete this project for our community; construction is scheduled to start Spring 2021.
100 Women Who Care Whistler is designed to make an immediate positive effect on the lives of our neighbours by bringing together 100 (or more) women in Whistler who care about local community causes and who are committed to community strength.
