Extraordinary Together: A Campaign for our Littlest Yukoners

Pregnancy and birth are exciting times in the lives of women, their families and communities. When a pregnancy or birth becomes complicated the team at WGH is ready to care for you. This year the Foundation is supporting their critical work by improving your health care team’s ability to deliver care for sick babies close to home.

Our plan is to create a new space on the Maternity ward where sick infants can receive life-saving care next to their mothers. The room will be equipped with the technology needed to stabilize and support sick babies and will be large enough to allow moms to receive their medical care next to their baby. We believe that babies do best close to the ones who love them and providers do best when able to keep their patients at the centre of what they do.

Family-centred care close to home for our littlest Yukoners
