About HPHA

SCHF LogoThe 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 $2 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.

“If we all give a little… we all get a lot!”

2020 Christmas Appeal

Give the gift that can’t be found under the tree…the gift of health.

Through the generosity of our donors, the Seaforth Community Hospital Foundation is able to keep our promise Your support this holiday season will enhance the patient experience and assist us to purchase critical, life-saving equipment that may touch the lives of your family, friends and neighbours.

Unfortunately, critical medical equipment, redevelopment and new technology for the Seaforth Community Hospital is not always sufficiently funded. Every gift you give helps - a donation this holiday season will make a real impact.

Members of the Seaforth Community Hospital Foundation and HPHA Staff pose with a new bed funded by the Foundation. 

In 2019/20, the Foundation donated a total of $140,432 to the Seaforth Community Hospital, which supported the purchase of new and essential medical equipment, including patient beds, over bed tables, cabinets, patient area curtain tracks and IT updates.  

If we all give a little... we all get a lot!  

This year, our Healthcare professionals are asking the community to support a multi-year Capital Equipment Plan totaling $2.3 million. Within this plan, the purchase of a new digital X-Ray unit has been highlighted as a priority.  

Exceptional Healthcare close to home…  

The Seaforth Community Hospital is a place where people know and trust their caregivers to provide quality care, close to home.


The HPHA values are Compassion, Accountability and Integrity. Here is what some patients had to say about their care:

“Doctors and nurses at Seaforth Hospital go above and beyond caring for the patients. The hospital is clean and amazing people.”

“…had a great stay nurses and doctors were fantastic as were the cleaners and kitchen staff very nice… “

We can never say thank you enough to our donors…  

Since 1994 the Seaforth Community Hospital Foundation has invested over $2.18 million dollars in support of medical equipment, redevelopment and new technology to the Seaforth Community Hospital.

We hope this holiday season, when you are considering charities to support, that you will be as passionate about supporting our local hospital as we are. It’s gratifying to see the tremendous support we receive from our communities each year.

From all of us at the Seaforth Community Hospital Foundation, we wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
