Help Keep Healthcare Local

About Us

The Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation is a registered charity (#88959 9825 RR001). Our 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 hospital care.

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.

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 Equipment becomes outdated quickly and new equipment is always needed.

The Board of Director set priorities each year during a planning session held in the summer. Donor support is key to ensuring that the hospital continues to thrive!
