B.C. billionaire Jim Pattison makes Canadian history
B.C. billionaire Jim Pattison reached into his deep pockets to make an unprecedented donation to the St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation on Tuesday.
Pattison is giving $75 million to build the Jim Pattison Medical Centre, an 18.4-acre health campus on False Creek Flats that will serve as the home of the new St. Paul’s Hospital and several other facilities.
The donation is the largest in Canadian history by a private citizen to a single medical facility.
