Opportunity to Join as a Founding Member

In its inaugural year, the Lois Hole Hospital Women’s Society is proud to offer the opportunity to become part of this special group as a Founding Member of the Lois Hole Hospital Women’s Society.

As a Founding Member, you will help to support our inaugural initiative to fulfill our purpose of working together to improve women’s health. We hope that you will consider being a part of this amazing group of women serving to help the Lois Hole Hospital for Women reach new heights in providing outstanding patient care through the purchase of an incredible piece of new technology, the Fluorescence Imaging Upgrade to the DaVinci Surgical Robot, a.k.a. Firefly

The DaVinci Robot was purchased with the support of donor dollars in late 2015 and this upgrade will empower surgeons to ignite hidden lymph nodes during oncological procedures giving them important information that is needed to provide the best quality of care for their patients. Using Firefly allows for faster, more objective, and accurate operations, which in turn provides better surgical outcomes and reduces patient recovery times. 

To become a Founding Member, we ask for a pledge of $1200.00 in either a one-time gift or in monthly installments of $100.00 for 12 consecutive months (commitment must be made by December 2018). 

Offline and online pledge options are both available.  

Benefits of becoming a Founding Member include: 

  • Influencing, inspiring and impacting excellence in women’s healthcare 
  • Recognition in the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation Honour Roll 
  • A hand forged, brass Smithstine cuff stamped with the coordinates of the Lois Hole Hospital for Women and a firefly
  • Invitation to the Founding Member’s Firefly Celebration

We hope that you will consider becoming a valued Founding Member of the Lois Hole Hospital Women’s Society and be part of igniting excellence in women’s health care.
