"There are any number of reasons we, or a loved one, may need our hospitals. I hope you will consider joining YGK Healthcare Champions to help ensure incredible care continues here in Kingston, having a little fun along the way."
- Greg Brown, YGK Healthcare Champion Member.


Between 2020 and 2022 the Champions raised over $220,000 to purchase Vcreate technology for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Kingston General Hospital.

  • Vcreate is a secure video technology that helps patients, families and clinical teams stay connected through their care journey.
  • “We feel that this tool will enhance the partnerships between the NICU team and the families that we care for. It is a platform through which we can record and share content in the care environment and share with families in a way that keeps them connected to their baby even when they are not at the bedside.”
    - Damiano Loricchio, Program Operational Director, Women and Children’s Programs, at KHSC.
In May 2023, the Champions raised over $38,000 at their first event, “A Night to Remember”, to support mental health at our health-care sites in Kingston. The Stand Up to Stigma campaign received $10,000 towards their annual conference which focused on compassion fatigue in health care workers. Providence Manor received $28,000 to support the purchase of an Omi Mobile Projection Machine.
  • “Omi Mobile Projection Machine will impact every resident in the home and can be used for all ages, cognition levels and abilities.  We have seen such an influx of younger residents and some of them are competitive.  Some of the games will be fun to use with them, especially on our Young Men’s Night when use it.  It will also be wonderful to encourage physical activity in a group setting for some of the residents who might not like the traditional exercise format.” Stacy Jowett, Interim Administration, Providence Manor.


The YGK Healthcare Champions monthly membership is $20 (a one-year commitment) and it will give you access to three networking and educational events.
