London Drugs owner donates $6.5 million to new St. Paul's Hospital (SPH)

British Columbia’s Louie Family has made a contribution of $6.5 million to help support the construction of the provincial Heart Centre within the new St. Paul’s Hospital in the False Creek Flats, near SkyTrain’s Main Street-Science World Station.

The family is best known for owning the chain of national retail stores, London Drugs, which was acquired by Tong Louie in 1976.

Their donation will go towards the new cardiac centre, which is the only cardiac centre in BC to combine highly specialized patient care with an integrated research centre.
