ICCHA means “WISH”.

The ICCHA/Wish Fund was established in 2007 at the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation in Kamloops. Today we have expanded our vision to include a partnership with Thompson Rivers University.

“When someone is sick in the hospital, we wish them well but that is not good enough, WE HAVE TO DO MORE! A wish for a healthy community can come true by businesses and individuals giving something back for the benefit of all who rely on Royal Inland Hospital." - Al Patel, Founder

ICCHA / Wish Fund at RIH

Goal: $1,000,000

The ICCHA/WISH Fund is proud to announce the establishment of the ICCHA/WISH CORONARY CARE UNIT (CCU) at Royal Inland Hospital.

Raising funds for urgently needed equipment for CCU is the foundation of our ultimate dream of a Catheterization Lab, which will enable coronary interventions and stent placement in patients with heart attacks at RIH.

The ICCHA / Wish Fund and Thompson Rivers University (TRU) are proud to announce a ground-breaking new partnership that will provide a $40,000 bursary each year that will fully fund undergraduate tuition for a nursing student in financial need.

"Have a Heart to Give..."

Watch the heartfelt stories of these incredible people who have suffered traumatic journeys just to receive basic cardiac care. We need more cardiac services in Kamloops so that when patients experience heart attacks, we can take care of our community.​

A BIG thank you to Colin Lyons, Dan Bader and Brad Van Goor for sharing their heartfelt stories about their out-of-town journeys to receive basic cardiac care.
