The Eric Woodward Foundation made a $1.1-million gift to support the new Pediatrics Zone and the Pediatric Waiting Lounge in Langley’s new Emergency Department.

Eric Woodward grew up in Langley. A former Internet entrepreneur, Eric then committed himself to the revitalization of Fort Langley and was President of the Fort Langley BIA from 2012 to 2017.

Eric also served as a director for Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation for five years before his election to Township of Langley Council, where he is currently serving his first term.

“I was inspired after a lengthy visit to the Emergency Department a few years ago,” says Eric Woodward, co-founder of the donating organization, the Eric Woodward Foundation. “The caregivers there work so hard each and every day for all of us, in a space that we all know is just too small and out-of-date. Everyone in Langley deserves better.”
