A new, flourishing partnership between the BC Women’s Health Foundation and the Auxiliary to benefit the long-standing Baby Tile Program


The baby tiles at BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre have a long-standing history spanning numerous decades, and the program will be benefitting from a new, flourishing partnership between the BC Women’s Health Foundation and the Auxiliary.

The Auxiliary to BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre is a registered charity dedicated to supporting patients and their families at BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre, and promoting the health and welfare of the community. With the help of dedicated volunteers and community leaders, the Auxiliary will be taking over the administration of the baby tiles from purchase to production and installation, maintaining a close connection to the walls of BC Women’s Hospital and the community.

“When you first step off the elevators, it’s breathtaking and so comforting to see all the baby tiles and families coming together through their journey here at BC Women’s Hospital. On behalf of the Auxiliary, we are thrilled to partner with the Foundation and our dedicated volunteers are very excited to support this amazing program.” – Barb Hestrin, President, Auxiliary to BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre

Funds raised by the Auxiliary will continue to support the work of the BC Women’s Health Foundation, helping to ensure women have equitable access to the highest quality healthcare.

Alternatively, cash, cheque, and credit card payments for baby tiles can be made payable to:
Auxiliary to BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre
4500 Oak Street
Vancouver, BC, V6H3N1
