BMO Financial Group has partnered with Surrey Hospitals Foundation with a gift of $250,000 to help further the professional development of pediatric nurses. This is the largest grant invested for pediatric nursing professional development in Fraser Health's history, and will benefit the health care of children in region.

Surrey Memorial Hospital is the pediatric hub of BC as the largest provider of newborn and pediatric health care in the province, treating more than 50,000 babies and children annually.

The Maternity Clinics at Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre (JPOCSC) see over 20,000 patient visits every year, and the Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic is part of the only specialized clinic in Fraser Health that provides in-depth and ongoing care for women with complex and high-risk pregnancies.

"This is an incredibly important investment, especially with almost half of BC’s children residing in the Fraser Health region, most of them in Surrey alone," says Dermot Kelly, Fraser Health’s Vice President of Community Hospitals and Health Services. "Surrey Memorial Hospital is a major high risk birthing centre for the Fraser Health region and donations like these are absolutely critical in supporting development of our pediatric nursing staff who provide care for newborns, children and youth."
