Why Give?

Keeping our hospital updated with the latest and best equipment is vital for the "Best Care Close to Home"

I give because ...

The hospital is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The hospital helps everyone - regardless of age, creed, race or financial status.
The hospital cares for my neighbours, my friends, my family and me.
The hospital provides expert care for ALL illnesses, so my dollars help people with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, etc.
The low cost per dollar (around $.07) means my dollars really make a difference!
I can reduce my taxes by giving.

child with nurseYour gifts allow doctors, nurses and technical staff to deliver outstanding health care to you, your family and generations to follow.

Funds raised with your help provide support to the Hospital to provide life saving and essential equipment to keep quality healthcare close to home. A capital requirements priority list for replacement, updated or new equipment is provided by the Hospital to the Foundation.

The government provides for operating costs of the hospital and thus, rarely funds equipment and facility improvements. Our Hospital teams rely on our giving community to raise 100% of annual equipment requirements.

Each year, SMHF’s goal is set at $500,000 and below are some of the priorities we are raising funds for this year.

You may designate your donation to Southampton or Regional needs.
