South Huron Hospital Foundation
The South Huron Hospital owes its very existence to a group of passionate people who saw the need for a local hospital and worked diligently gathering support and funds until the hospital doors opened in 1953. Over the years our community has continued its support when the need arose for additions, renovations or new equipment.
Formed in 1982, after changes to government funding in health care, the South Huron Hospital Foundation was created to raise the funds needed for capital expenses, such as equipment and major renovations.
Today, the South Huron Hospital remains as the South Huron Hospital Foundation’s top priority. Each and every year the Foundation funds a comprehensive list of capital needs presented to us by the South Huron Hospital Association Board, Hospital Leadership, and Medical Staff. Enabling “The Little Hospital That Does” will always be our top priority. We believe whole-heartedly that our hospital’s success is essential to our community’s vitality.
Guided by our Mission Statement: “The South Huron Hospital Foundation is dedicated to improving the access to and the quality of care in South Huron…”, we utilize a variety of fund-development initiatives in order to raise significant capital so that we are able to support our hospital as it strives to provide top quality care, with top quality resources.
While funding the needs of the hospital will always be the Foundation’s main priority, we do at times support other important community healthcare initiatives that benefit our community and local health care system as well. An example of this is our involvement with the build of Jessica’s House Hospice- something we’re deeply proud of.
Over the past 5 years (2017-2021) the South Huron Hospital Foundation has funded more than $3 million in capital needs for the South Huron Hospital, while also assisting in the development of a $3 million capital campaign for the build of Jessica’s House Hospice. We are proud of the work we have facilitated in this community, and take great care in managing the generous donations from our beloved community in a fair and transparent way. Thank you for continuing to support the mission of the South Huron Hospital Foundation. Together, with your support, we are keeping healthcare in our community viable, accessible, and current.
