$1.9 Million to the Wingham & District Hospital – Historic Moment for Foundation and Hospital
Donations to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation were able to fund $1,906,119 worth of facility upgrades and medical equipment for the Wingham & District Hospital in the past year (2018-2019). The board of the WDH Foundation presented this record breaking annual donation to Hospital representatives on May 22nd.
This is the single largest one-year contribution made by the WDH Foundation to the Hospital in its history. The historic gift was only possible thanks to the generosity of people in our community who made charitable gifts to the Foundation. Special thanks this year is owed to all those donors who continue to honour their multi-year pledges to the Our Hospital, Our Future campaign.
The funds provided to the Hospital through the Foundation this year have gone towards the major redevelopment of several hospital departments including the Oncology department, Pharmacy, and Team Nursing Station as well as the ongoing improvements being made to the Outpatient clinic, Sterilization department and Operating suite. In addition to the renovations, these funds have purchased several medical devices including a 3D Scope Navigation System, which was funded largely through donations received during the annual CKNX Healthcare Heroes Radiothon. Some of the other medical equipment funded includes inpatient beds and chairs, a medical-electric bathtub, stress test machine, transport ventilator and endoscopic tower.
The members Auxiliary to the Wingham & District Hospital also contributed significant funds to the Foundation this year which helped fund an inpatient lift, mattresses and scope attachments.
The ongoing commitment our community demonstrates year after year to keeping the facilities and medical equipment at the Wingham & District Hospital up to date is outstanding. Without the generosity of local families and businesses our Hospital would not be the quality healthcare establishment it is today. The board of the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation is proud to partner with our community to support the Hospital and looks forward to another successful year of fundraising in 2019-2020.
