John and Dana Montalbano’s visits to BC Children’s Hospital always left them impressed with the ways in which caregivers deliver compassionate care to every young patient.
The Montalbanos see the rising demand for long- term respiratory care, and recognize that BC Children’s Hospital has to be able to continue to meet that demand with world-class treatment for children with breathing challenges.
Thanks to donors like the Montalbanos, who made a gift of $1 million to the Campaign for BC Children, the new Teck Acute Care Centre will be home to a new inpatient unit for children with respiratory conditions. The new facility will give patients and families access to specialized care in an environment designed to meet their unique needs.
“Outside of the well-being of one’s family, there’s nothing more satisfying than to give philanthropically,” says Dana Montalbano.
John Montalbano sees child health as an excellent cause, particularly for those who want to start giving back to the community. “For those yet to do so, we strongly encourage individuals, families and organizations to consider their first steps into philanthropy with BC Children’s Hospital,” he says.
