The role of the Seaforth Community Hospital Foundation is to provide the community with a range of opportunities to continually improve patient care at the Seaforth Community Hospital.
Since incorporation under the Canada Business Corporation Act in 1994, the Foundation has invested over $1.5 million in support of critical medical equipment, redevelopment and new technology to the Seaforth Community Hospital.
Ongoing support from the community is crucial to ensure that the necessary medical equipment, beyond Ministry of Health funding, is available when an emergency occurs. A gift will make a real impact at life's most crucial time.
In 2016-17 the Foundation has committed to raise funds for:
- Patient Room Oxygen/Suction
- New Ultrasound Unit
“If we all give a little… we all get a lot!”
