2018 SUMMER CAMPAIGN
Dear Friends of Centre Grey Health Services Foundation:
In April, Accreditations Canada did extensive surveys with our hospital staff, where they observed practices and reviewed policies. Our teams sailed through with an amazing preliminary score of 98%!
The Markdale hospital staff are providing quality care even with an inadequate building. Of course, it is thanks to each of you who have financially supported the hospital and provided equipment, technology needs and even basic furniture. Your dollars are put to very good use.
Each year the cost of keeping healthcare close to home is rising, we are depending on loyal friends like you to help. In 2018/19 the Foundation has an ambitious goal of raising $500,000 for capital expenses not covered by Government funding. This is a huge task, but it is not impossible.
Specifically, at the Markdale site, security cameras need to be replaced and enhanced to monitor and record activity at the entrances. The safety of patients, staff and you the public is a high priority and there needs to be confidence in the system.
Won't you consider helping us ensure safety at GBHS-Markdale Site?
The new hospital project continues to move forward with the final submission going to the Ministry of Health in late May. Everyone is eagerly awaiting approval to call for tenders. The journey has been long but the new hospital will enhance the care and services we deserve.
Please consider giving to the Summer Campaign. I ask that you give what you can, donate online or by mailing the reply envelope and donation form. A charitable tax receipt will be issued. All funds received go directly to the ongoing needs of keeping health care close to home.
Thank you for caring! Enjoy your summer!
With warm regards,
Chair – CGHS Foundation
P.S. Mark your calendars July 11-14 for the Silent Auction. Looking forward to seeing you there!
