Tulips and Emergency Room Services in Surrey

Surrey is already a beautiful place. The City of Park has mountain views, farm land, meadows, forests and too many parks to count on your fingers and toes alone. If you can get yourself past the South end of the Pattullo Bridge, you’ll find this out for yourself. Want to help it even more exceptionally good-looking? Want to do that AND help with the development and upgrade of BC’s busiest Emergency Room?

Called Tulips for Tomorrow, the appeal offers donors an opportunity to help beautify Surrey, as well as ensure Surrey Memorial Hospital receives a state-of-the-art replacement to its current, overcrowded E.R. “We have close to 100,000 tulip bulbs to spread throughout the city,” says Foundation President/CEO Jane Adams. “From now until the end of the year, donors of $100 or more to the Emergency Centre Campaign can pick up a number of bulbs for themselves. They also have the option of contributing those tulips to the beautification program.” [Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation]

With a donation (of $100 or more) you will receive a voucher to pick up tulips from David Hunter Garden Centres or 99 Nursery & Florist. You can plant them wherever you like but there are also several ‘designated planting sites’ scattered throughout the city – the South end of the Pattullo Bridge being one of them.

Surrey Memorial Hospital’s current ER – the busiest in B.C. – was designed to handle about 44,000 visits a year but has instead been seeing close to 70,000 patients a year.

The new Emergency Centre, at triple the size of the current facility, will include a separate children’s ER, as well as a separate mental health and addictions area, an enhanced minor treatment unit, and an improved area for acute patients. [SMHFoundation]
