$100,000 5-Year Pledge Received From Bruce Power

Bruce Power is committing $1.45 million over the next five years with $250,000 apiece being allocated to the Bruce Peninsula Health Services Foundation, the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation, and the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation and $100,000 apiece to the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation, the Wingham District Hospital Foundation, Alexandra Marine & General Hospital Foundation, Walkerton & District Hospital Foundation, Meaford Hospital Foundation, Chesley & District Health Services Foundation, and Hanover & District Hospital Foundation. This commitment will support the efforts of the foundations to provide the latest equipment and services while recognizing the important work and services provided by local hospitals to local residents and visitors.

Bruce Power announced last summer that it will focus $2 million of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) budget between 2019 and 2023 on health care, mental health and education initiatives.

“Among the most important issues for families in the community are the quality of health care and education, so we decided in 2018 to focus a significant portion of our Community Investment and Sponsorship budget on those areas to help local organizations continue to provide the best care for people,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “Today’s announcement is the start of our commitment to assist local communities in making sure they offer high-quality health care.”

Donors Make a Difference
It is people like you who make our work possible.

Thank you to every one who has made a commitment to supporting local healthcare.
Our doctors, our nurses, the digital imaging department, and the rest of the staff at the hospital provide that compassionate care that everyone looks for when they walk into their local hospital. And, I think we’ve got one of the best local hospitals in Southwestern Ontario.

I donate in memory and in honour of my Mom and Dad. I am sure they would be thrilled to realize that our family has continued giving, but more importantly, hopefully encourage more people to donate to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation. All three of us, at one time or another, received outstanding care at the hospital when we were patients. We have a strong connection with the hospital! I know the community feels very fortunate to have a local hospital – which is an excellent one – as it plays such an important part in everyone’s lives.
