It’s the end of an era for the Saanich Peninsula Hospital & Healthcare Foundation (SPHHF), as CEO Karen Morgan retires at the end of September. At the same time the SPHHF Board of Directors is pleased to announce, and to welcome, Sarah Bragg to the role.

Karen has been an integral part of SPHHF since 2000 expanding their mission into the community, spearheading the fundraising of millions of dollars, and leading the way with her enthusiasm and commitment to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital as the heart of our community. Karen says: “From the beginning to retirement, this job has been the most fun you can have and still get paid. I’d like to thank our board members, donors, sponsors and the whole community, for their constant support of better healthcare on the Saanich Peninsula. And I’d like to thank my husband Tim and my daughters Kait and Maude, for their understanding of the long hours and their willingness to pitch in when necessary.”

There is a transition period from August 1st when Sarah will be working alongside Karen. Sarah comes to SPHHF from her position as Executive Director at the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation on Salt Spring Island. Sarah says: “As a former Operating Room nurse, working in support of a hospital and healthcare team is very important to me. I am excited to bring my years of experience in healthcare and not-for-profit leadership to this role, and look forward to working with Karen and the team before she transitions to her well-deserved retirement.

I look forward to building on valued relationships with Island Health, established during my time as Executive Director at Lady Minto Hospital Foundation. It will be my honour to work closely with the incredible healthcare team at Saanich Peninsula Hospital, to identify their evolving and most urgent needs going forward. I will devote my efforts to identifying how the Foundation can best support SPH, as it remains nimble in meeting the healthcare needs of the community now and into the future.

I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the wonderful Board and Staff at SPHHF. Together we will continue the Foundation’s great work and build on its legacy of accomplishments. I look forward to working with the Foundation’s incredible donor community and corporate partners, who have come together for decades in support of a healthier future for everyone on the Peninsula.”

Since its formation, the Foundation has raised $65 million dollars for equipment, facilities and programs both at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital and in the community. The SPHHF Board and staff look forward to continuing to advance their vision of community healthcare with Sarah at the helm.
