Miller Family Makes Generous Gift to NICU

The Victoria Hospital Foundation (VHF) is excited to announce an incredible gift of $20,000 from Kelly & Susi Miller of Prince Albert. The personal gift was a continuation of their generosity and support of local healthcare. Their passion about the Foundation’s campaign for the new NICU was overwhelming after having first-hand experience with the birth of a medically fragile grandchild.

In the fall of 2018, the Victoria Hospital Foundation launched a $5 million dollar campaign to build and equip a state of the art, level 2 NICU for sick babies born in the north. To date, the community and Foundation have raised just over $3M. Every day, eleven fragile newborns will have better outcomes because of donations like the Millers.

“We all hear of the need, but seldom do we act until it affects us personally. A decade ago, Susi and I were blessed with our tenth grandchild. Very soon after birth, the baby required medical attention not available in Prince Albert. Only then did we understand the vital addition that our own NICU could provide. Knowing your child needs specialized care is enough of a burden not to add the complication of being 85 miles from home. Travelling in the dead of a Saskatchewan winter, the expense of missing work and living in a hotel added to the anxiety of the situation. And of course not having the creature comforts of home only added to the anxiety. We truly have a need for this unit. It has been a long time coming.
Our family is proud to support the efforts to bring our own NICU facility on line. We urge all who can, to support this much-needed project.”

“Our Foundation and medical teams are deeply thankful to Kelly and Susi Miller for their commitment to local healthcare and their incredible generosity. Their gift will help us to fund a state of the art medication dispensing system for the new Malhotra NICU. It’s this kind of technology that is made possible only because of our donors and community. ”
