About the NS Hospice
North Shore Hospice Operations
The North Shore Hospice is funded and operated by Vancouver Coastal Health. Although other hospices in the Lower Mainland are operated by local hospice societies, the North Shore Hospice is funded and managed through our provincial Health Authority.
Vancouver Coastal Health provides the provincially mandated palliative and hospice care for all patients in the North Shore Palliative and Supportive Care Program whether they are in the Hospice, Lions Gate Hospital or in the community. For information about VCH palliative care visit www.coastalpalliativecare.ca
The North Shore Hospice Society funds additional patient programs and services to complement and extend VCH’s palliative and hospice care on the North Shore.
See Palliative and Supportive Care Day Program or the Bill Field Community Fund or Community Outreach and Education for more information about programs and services funded by the North Shore Hospice Society.
Financial Support for the Hospice and Palliative Care
The North Shore Hospice was built and opened in 2010 with capital raised from our local communities. The North Shore Hospice Society (previously the Lions Gate Hospice Society), the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, and Family Services of the North Shore were partners in a large capital campaign that raised funds to build and furnish the Hospice.
The North Shore Hospice Society contributed $500,000 to the capital campaign. This was the third largest individual donation and the Multi-Purpose Room in the Hospice is named after the Society in memory of Werner Zimmerman.
