ICCHA means “WISH”.
The ICCHA/Wish Fund was established in 2007 at the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation in Kamloops. The goal of the ICCHA/Wish fund is to raise urgently needed equipment and services for Royal Inland Hospital.
We are a volunteer-based fund, supported by the RIH Foundation. This means that your donated dollars go directly to equipment and services at Royal Inland Hospital. Since 2007, the ICCHA / Wish Fund has raised over $1.4 million dollars for projects at Royal Inland Hospital.
“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
The ICCHA/WISH Fund is proud to announce the opening of the new ICCHA/WISH Coronary Care Unit. This is the first step in reaching our ultimate dream of a Catheterization Lab for the Royal Inland Hospital (RIH).
The 2020 goal is to raise $300,000 and provide RIH with a dedicated ECHOCARDIOGRAM that will help reduce current wait times for non-invasive diagnosis at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, BC.
as of July 15, 2020
Your dollars go directly to purchasing the 3D Echocardiogram for the ICCHA / Wish Fund Coronary Care Unit. Help reach our community's goal to provide urgently needed equipment for our cardiologists.

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.
