Monday, February 25, 2019

PARC Retirement Living recently made an extraordinary donation of $1.2 million to Peace Arch Hospital’s redevelopment of five brand new surgical suites.

“PARC Retirement Living is committed to supporting initiatives that are integral to the community and that strengthen the lives of seniors and all generations in the neighbourhood,” said Rainer Müller, German owner and founder of PARC Retirement Living. “Peace Arch Hospital and its Foundation are well known for initiatives that enhance the health and wellness of those who live in the White Rock and South Surrey areas. As the newest member of the White Rock community, PARC Retirement Living is pleased that it can help ensure that Peace Arch Hospital can accommodate the increasing demand for services from this growing population.”

PARC Retirement Living, builder and operator of the Oceana PARC residence in White Rock, has been a strong supporter of Peace Arch Hospital Foundation since 2016 when they signed on as title sponsor of the Friends of the Foundation event and supported the Peace Arch Hospital Gala.

“We are so grateful for this incredibly generous gift from PARC Retirement Living to our new operating suites,” said Stephanie Beck, Peace Arch Hospital Foundation’s Executive Director. “Their caring and philanthropic spirit is truly remarkable and a testament to their commitment to the health and well-being of the communities they serve.”

In recognition of their generous $1.2 million contribution, the ‘Registration and Triage Area’ in the new Emergency Department will be named in PARC Retirement Living’s honour.

Oceana PARC is an independent retirement residence that offers resort-style amenities and is located at 1575 George Street in White Rock. The building is in the final stages of construction and is slated to open in summer 2019.
