Aldergrove Financial Group has committed to a $50,000 donation to the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation’s “It All Starts Here” capital campaign to support a maternity ward expansion at Langley Memorial Hospital.

“Our support of the Langley Memorial Hospital helps support families in our growing and thriving community,” says Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus Hartl. “We’ve supported the Foundation for years and couldn’t think of a better way to continue our support.”

The expansion will allow for much needed improvements, including additional single room maternity care rooms, renovated and expanded nursery space, additional on-call rooms for medical students, a new multi-purpose space for team training and meetings, and for the expansion and relocation of the Langley Maternity Clinic.

“As a local business organization and as a credit union, we take responsibility for improving the health of our community. The Langley Memorial Hospital ultimately serves us all. Through this donation, we’re doing our part in serving our community,” said Hartl.

Aldergrove Financial Group has a history of supporting local communities, which extends in many ways and touches numerous areas where its members, staff and their families live. Aldergrove Financial Group truly is a community credit union.
