Partnering with our donors and the community to support exceptional care

The West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation has been in operation for over 30 years and is a major fundraising body for the hospital. Each year WHGH is faced with the challenge of keeping up-to-date with new technology and ensuring we have the best medical equipment and tools available. The Foundation plays a pivotal role in supporting excellence in patient care at WHGH. Gifts made to the Foundation will help ensure our caregivers have the medical equipment they need to care for our patients.

The Ontario government may fund the hospital’s operations annually, but at the heart of the hospital’s foundation is the community it serves. To raise funds for equipment upgrades each year, the West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation seek donations from the community to help purchase much-needed medical equipment, from blanket warmers to an ultrasound machine, used in the hospital. The community has shown time and time again that they want to support their hospital. It takes a community to support a hospital, and they continue to do so year after year.

It’s important to note that every dollar the community donates will help ensure that physicians and staff at West Haldimand General Hospital have the tools and equipment they need to provide every patient with exceptional care. While West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation recognizes that the community needs and relies on their local hospital for help, WHGH also recognizes that they need the community’s support as well.

Thank you for your support and confidence in West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation.
