Together We Can Make A Difference
Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation’s mission is to raise and manage funds for equipment, facilities and staff development to ensure our community and visitors have access to the best possible local hospital care. We in turn, count on your generous financial support to continue to make it all possible for us to meet our needs each year. Government provides less than 10% of funds needed for new diagnostic and medical equipment.
Your Help Is Needed!
With your much needed support each year, we raise between $700,000 and $900,000 to purchase the capital list of priority equipment needs. Hospital equipment is generally not funded by the government. Equipment becomes outdated quickly and new equipment is always needed. We are also in the final stages of raising funds for the ER/Lab Expansion Project at the Southampton Site.
The Foundation is one of five Foundations supporting the 6 hospitals in Grey Bruce Health Services; Owen Sound, Markdale, Wiarton/Lion’s Head, Meaford and Southampton. Our fundraised dollars are used to purchase equipment for the Southampton site and our share, generally based on patient usage, for our regional hospital in Owen Sound.
