Howick Mutual Insurance Continues to Support Local Healthcare with $50,000 donation to Wingham Hospital Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign

Howick Mutual Insurance Company has pledged to donate $50,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation’s Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign. This donation is one more in a long line of contributions to the Wingham & District Hospital. Howick Mutual is a long-time supporter of the CKNX Healthcare Heroes Radiothon, a regular corporate sponsor of the Wingham & Area Healthcare Professionals Recruitment Committee and has been the lead sponsor of the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation’s Great Race fundraiser since 2013.

CEO Kevin Inglis says it is important for the company to give back to the community on behalf of their policyholders because “our policyholders are the same people we share the community with; we all go to the same churches, schools, play on the same sports teams, and certainly go to the same Hospitals”.

The Board of Howick Mutual Insurance Company presented their two year $50,000 pledge to the campaign team at the Wingham & District Hospital on Tuesday, April 12. Campaign team leader Jenny Hogervorst said, “We are really lucky to have such a generous company in our community that is so dedicated to healthcare”.         


The Our Hospital, Our Future Campaign is a $4 million capital fundraising campaign supporting the expansion of essential healthcare infrastructure at the Wingham & District Hospital, including the expansion of the only chemotherapy clinic in Huron and Bruce Counties, the creation of a healthcare campus with a focus on providing primary care to the aging population and upgrading vital medical equipment. The success of this project will ensure high quality healthcare continues to be available to all 30,000 residents of the Hospital’s surrounding communities. As of the beginning of April, the campaign team has received pledges totalling 47.5% of the campaign goal.  More information can be found at www.wdhfoundation.ca.
