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.

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.

Seaforth Community Hospital recipient of CMA Foundation funding for COVID-19 relief

March 11, 2021 

The CMA Foundation’s COVID-19 Community Hospital Fund granted $44,000 to the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA) Seaforth Community Hospital as part of its COVID-19 relief initiative to support those on the frontline of this pandemic.

“These funds will be used to enhance the patient care experience within the hospital, allowing us the ability to create flexible and adaptable patient care areas through the purchase of a negative air machine, a portable pressure monitor, an ante room panel kit, protective screening at communication stations, a workstation on wheels, a portable oxygen saturation monitor and vital sign towers,” says Dick Burgess, Foundation Chair. “It is in these times of crisis and uncertainty that strong communities pull together to help one another. The Seaforth Community Hospital Board of Directors are grateful for the support from the CMA Foundation that is helping us build stronger health care resources for the communities we serve."

The CMA Foundation announced the COVID-19 Community Hospital Fund as part of its commitment to provide COVID-19 relief. The $5 million fund supports hospitals across Canada with fewer than 100 beds to meet their evolving needs with activities, equipment and training that enhance staff wellness, improve access to care and help prepare for future pandemics.

"I am inspired every day by the dedication of physicians, health care providers and all hospital workers as they continue to confront the COVID-19 pandemic head-on,” says Allison Seymour, CMA Foundation president. "We know these are extraordinary times that require extraordinary support. From managing evolving health care needs to address changes in your community, to ensuring the proper equipment and training for your staff, our hope is that these funds will have a positive impact as you continue to navigate the challenges of the pandemic.”

The CMA Foundation is the charitable arm of the Canadian Medical Association and provides impactful charitable giving that furthers excellence in health care. To date, the foundation has committed more than $30 million in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
