Support for hospital appreciated

Section: 
Letter

Each and every year, South Bruce Grey Health Centre is generously supported by the hospital foundations in each of our communities: the Chesley & District Health Services Foundation, the Durham & Community Health Care Foundation, the Kincardine & Community Health Care Foundation and the Walkerton & District Hospital Foundation.

As we near the end of another fiscal year, I am once again humbled by the support our hospital has received from each of these volunteer-based organizations. This year alone, from April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016, a total of over $870,000 in equipment was purchased by the foundations, including essential items such as the replacement of the infusion pumps for all of our sites. Simply put, our hospital could not operate without the support of these foundations. We rely on their contributions, and greatly appreciate their efforts to ensure the sustainability of health care in our communities.

On behalf of the board, staff and physicians at South Bruce Grey Health Centre, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Chesley & District Health Services Foundation, the Durham & Community Health Care Foundation, the Kincardine & Community Health Care Foundation and the Walkerton & District Hospital Foundation for ensuring that we have the best equipment available to provide the highest quality care to our patients.

Paul Rosebush, President and CEO,
