Working to improve the health of the population and the quality of life of the people we serve.

Under the leadership of Sandra Palmer, the RCH Resource Centre Team came up with the unique idea of creating a centre for patients and families to access health information, using a Wireless Hotspot that connects them with their own personal computers. It is the first of its kind in Fraser Health, and was done in collaboration with the volunteers, the IT department, and the RCH Foundation.
Volunteers dedicated many hours purchasing equipment, coordinating the computer technology installation, and making sure every department in the hospital was connected with the catalogue data and health databases. The result is that the resource centre has provides 24/7 access to wireless internet technology to anyone who wishes to use their own computers on site. The resource centre is one stop shopping for patients, families, staff and caregivers at RCH.
