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


ICCHA/Wish Improving Healthcare Excellence for All


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.

ICCHA / Wish Fund at TRU

Goal: $1,000,000

ICCHA Wish and Thompson Rivers University (TRU) are proud to announce a ground-breaking new partnership that will fully fund nursing school for students in need. 

ICCHA Wish is raising $1 million to support the ICCHA Wish Community Ambassador Fund at TRU to help students for which post-secondary education might be out of reach. For every $50,000 raised, ICCHA Wish can support one student through four years of nursing school at TRU. 


Become a Hero of the Heart

Our Heroes of the Heart will also be acknowledged in the ICCHA/Wish "Our Community Giving Back" magazine which will be distributed to 30,000 homes  by Kamloops This Week.

All funds raised will go directly to improving cardiac care at ICCHA/WISH Coronary Cardiac Care at Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops.

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.
