With most of my family being born at Surrey Memorial (over the span of three decades) and with most of them still in the area, service upgrades and new developments are always welcome announcements.

    I gave birth last year at smh. It was a difficult birth and my baby was premature. I felt like I was in great hands there. They saved our lives. The labour and delivery people and the nicu nurses. Top notch. Made a terrifying experience for a first time mom and dad manageable. My baby and I owe them our lives.
