RHF Hearing Foundation makes major gift for hearing clinic renovation at St. Paul’s Hospital

April 24th, 2013

The RHF Hearing Foundation has donated $250,000 towards a $500,000 campaign to help St. Paul’s’s Rotary Hearing Clinic expand and improve services for ear and hearing patients from throughout British Columbia.

“The RHF Hearing Foundation is proud to announce this gift to St. Paul’s as part of the Rotary Club of Vancouver’s 100th Anniversary celebrations,” said Mary Laing, president of the Rotary Club of Vancouver. “With this gift, the RHF Hearing Foundation has now donated more than $700,000 since 1998 to support patients across the province at the St. Paul’s Rotary Hearing Clinic.”

The RHF Hearing Foundation’s most recent gift will go towards purchasing an audiology booth and renovating St. Paul’s Rotary Hearing Clinic. The $500,000 project also includes the purchase of innovative ear surgery equipment for the operating room and support research, education and innovation in ear and hearing.

“On behalf of the patients we serve throughout the province, I’d like to thank the RHF Hearing Foundation for its long history of support to St. Paul’s Rotary Hearing Clinic,” says Dr. Brian Westerberg, head of St. Paul’s Division of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. “Once this project is complete, we will be able to provide timelier and more efficient and effective care for people with ear and hearing-related disorders.”
