Purpose of the Hospital Comforts Fund
The Hospital Comforts Program was created in 2006 from a need to fill a perceived void with charitable works in providing for the care and comfort of Canadian Forces members confined to hospital from injury, illness, accident or surgery.
The concept of the program is to provide support to the hospitalized member that is both consistent and sustainable within a framework to ensure the best possible services to the member.
The HCP identifies services that must be provided to members wounded in operations but it also recognizes that there is a requirement for a flexible system of service delivery that will meet the needs of those hospitalized in civilian hospitals across Canada, in overseas hospitals, such as the Landstuhl Regional Medical Centre in Germany, and in the Kandahar Role 3 Medical Facility Mission.
