Jim Pattison Makes Record $75 Million Donation to St. Paul’s Foundation

Gift supports the Jim Pattison Medical Centre, home of the new St. Paul’s Hospital

This purpose-built integrated Medical Centre will transform health care in BC, and around the world

St. Paul’s Foundation today announced the largest donation in Canadian history by a private citizen to a single medical facility. This unprecedented philanthropic donation will support the transformation of health care for British Columbians with the creation of the new St. Paul’s at the Jim Pattison Medical Centre, a world-class medical and research centre in the heart of Vancouver.

“On behalf of the Jim Pattison Foundation, I am proud to donate to St. Paul’s Foundation for a hospital that has been putting people first in our community for more than 120 years,” said Jim Pattison, Chairman and CEO of the Jim Pattison Group. “The new Jim Pattison Medical Centre will build on St. Paul’s Hospital’s history of serving British Columbians with excellence and compassion, and enable close collaboration among clinicians and researchers to collectively drive new standards in health care and treatment for all British Columbians.”

Not Jimmy's first donation and hopefully not his last. In Vancouver alone I can think of a couple of hospitals that owe certain wings or more to Jimmy's generosity.
Thank you, sir.

And it goes beyond Vancouver. The name Jim Pattison is on more than one Donor wall at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton. And that was before he owned a radio station or car dealership here.

That is roughly 1.4 percent of his approximately $5.6 billion (source: Forbes) net worth...

Is it good or bad? Curious as to why you felt the need to research/post that.

I've spent the past two days at the Jim Pattison Centre in Surrey accompanying a friend who was having some tests done there.

What a beautiful state of the art facility. I'm sure his contribution to St. Paul's will be just as great.

Thank you, Mr. Pattison, for sharing with the people of BC and making lives a whole lot better.
