In 2020, local realtor Kate Cammidge Irwin committed to making a donation to Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation for every home that she sold as part of the new Community Partnership Program.
Due to the uncertainty in regards to timelines around the Covid-19 pandemic and the measures issued by government and health agencies to combat its spread, the Board of Directors of the Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation feel it is in the best interest of our participants and our community to cancel this year’s Gran Fondo Lake Huron event.

Our friend Hardy Henry celebrated his 60th birthday and asked his friends to skip the gifts and donate to the Hospital Foundation instead.
One simple birthday wish turned into $1300. Thanks Hardy for helping us scratch another item off the list of needed medical equipment and making sure the people of Saugeen Shores get the healthcare they need when they need it!!
You can help your friends, family and neighbours too this Holiday season or anytime of the year by doing something as easy as what Hardy did. Your imagination is your only limit.

The Physicians and Nurses in the Emergency Department are saying a big thank you to everyone who helped raise funds in last year’s Gran Fondo Lake Huron, presented by Bruce Power. Fundraising dollars from that event helped to purchase this amazing portable ultrasound machine
The emergency department is the first line of healthcare in a crisis or trauma. Physicians and nurses working in the emergency department are tasked with establishing a diagnosis and stabilizing a patient’s condition under stressful and often time sensitive situations.
Portable ultrasound technology is the new age “visual stethoscope” of healthcare. This equipment is highly sensitive and uses non-invasive technology that allows healthcare staff to not only quickly assess but also detect any abnormalities in emergent situations and in every day care.
Having portable ultrasound technology in the emergency department can help reduce delays and ensure high quality real time imaging at the bedside, which can be crucial when the difference in minutes can mean saving a life.
