Every year, our Annual Friends for Life Campaign focuses on raising funds to purchase priority medical equipment to assist the QEH family in providing the best health care possible. Support from the community enables us to purchase life-saving, up-to-date medical equipment and technology to care for all Islanders in times of need.

Essentially, the majority of the hospital’s medical equipment needs are funded by donations. Gifts of all sizes make a huge impact on patients of the QEH, their families, friends and communities.

This year, our Annual Friends for Life Campaign is raising funds for critical equipment needed to support emergency medical care at the QEH.

Islanders are still feeling the compounding effects of the global pandemic and the destruction caused by Hurricane Fiona. It is during these difficult times that we are reminded of the crucial role that the Queen Elizabeth Hospital plays in emergency preparedness and response for Prince Edward Island.

While we can never predict what is coming our way, your donations to the QEH Foundation help ensure the hospital’s health care team is prepared.

More than $1 million in critical equipment is needed to support emergency medical care at the QEH emergency department, intensive care unit, and provincial laboratory. We hope you can join us in supporting this year’s campaign and contributing to emergency preparedness and the future of health care in PEI.
