Peace Arch Hospital Foundation’s Maternity Update

Fraser Health has informed us that they plan to temporarily shut down Peace Arch Hospital’s maternity unit on January 28, 2022, in response to the challenges of securing pediatricians for the hospital. This has been an ongoing issue for several years with diversions taking place throughout 2021. This is not what our Foundation, our donors, or our patients expect or deserve.

Fraser Health has assured us that this shut down is temporary, lasting a few months at the most, while they secure enough pediatricians for Peace Arch Hospital. We have emphasized to Fraser Health our financial commitment, in any way possible, to remedying this unfortunate situation for our community. Maternity care has long been a priority for the Foundation and that remains unchanged. We will continue to work closely with Fraser Health to find a permanent solution to this issue.
