Who We Are
Friends of Chinook Regional Hospital is a volunteer-led organization operating the gift shop and TV/phone program at Chinook Regional Hospital in Lethbridge. All proceeds from these operations are used to benefit Chinook Regional Hospital in support of patient care and programs.
Since 1989, the Society of Friends of Chinook Regional Hospital (Friends) has grown from a tiny nook in the wall, too small for a wheelchair, to a robust retail operation offering thousands of items for our patrons. The television program has expanded from a humble 30 sets to over 200 currently in service.
Society of Friends of Chinook Regional Hospital operates a social enterprise to enhance the experience of patients, volunteers, and entire Chinook Regional Hospital community.READ MORE >

Friends of Chinook Regional Hospital
Overseen by a volunteer board, Friends is committed to deploying our resources as efficiently and effectively as possible, to support programs important to the patient experience. Over the years Friends has purchased medical equipment and provided program funding to Volunteer Resources and Healing Arts totalling well over one million dollars.
Friends continue to find ways to enhance the hospital community through the efforts of dedicated staff and volunteers.
Our goal is to make your time in the hospital as comfortable as possible – AND all our proceeds go directly back to the hospital!
