SOSJ is in partnership with North Shore Palliative Care Program providing a $175,000 pledge that will be distributed over two years. The ‘Because We Care Outpatient Clinic’ is attached to the North Shore Hospice and offers pain management and treatment of other symptoms for patients with life threatening illnesses. Its goal is to avoid patient treatment delays in the emergency department, the chemotherapy unit, and to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions. This clinic is very innovative and the first of its kind in BC. SOSJ’s sponsorship will be acknowledged with appropriate signage in the reception area.
