Scotiabank Commits $20,000 to Wingham Hospital Redevelopment Project
Scotiabank Commits $20,000 to Wingham Hospital Redevelopment Project

Scotiabank has pledged to contribute $20,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation to support the major redevelopment project. With branches in Goderich and Listowel, Scotiabank serves clients throughout Huron County including much of the Wingham & District Hospital’s service area. Their clients and staff are the same people who will benefit from the improvements to the Hospital facility and services.

Goderich Branch Manager Jane Beaver and District VP Andrew Smith visited the Hospital to present their $20,000 donation. Beaver said, “Scotiabank believes in helping communities bring their passions to life and supporting this unique vision for healthcare at the Wingham Hospital will make all the surrounding communities a richer place for everyone to live”. WDH Foundation Treasurer Gord Baxter has worked with Scotiabank on behalf of the Foundation for many years and is grateful to Beaver and Smith for helping make the donation a reality. He said, “We are pleased to count Scotiabank among the many financial institutions that have been so generous to the redevelopment fundraising campaign”.   

All donations to the redevelopment project support the expansion of six Hospital departments including the only chemotherapy clinic in Huron and Bruce Counties, upgrading of digital imaging equipment and the creation of a primary care clinic in the new community healthcare campus building located adjacent to the Hospital.

The Wingham & District Hospital is currently undergoing the first stages of a $17 million redevelopment. With less than $6 million of that cost coming from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, community contributions, such as the $20,000 donation from Scotiabank, can still make a significant difference to protecting and promoting high quality local healthcare. Currently, work is nearing completion on the new clinic in the community healthcare campus and the new registration area within the Hospital. The Rehabilitation Department has been expanded and moved to the front of the Hospital and is now open and serving patients.
