Over the past months, our communities have worked closer together than ever before. It has challenged us to think of new ways to support patients with excellent care, closer to home. We are pleased to share an exciting milestone for the future of our hospital.
In the spirit of supporting patients, the Boards of Directors of the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation and the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation have decided to amalgamate and join as one legal entity. To be in place by early 2021, the new Foundation will be called the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital Foundation and will represent the volunteer passions of both Boards of Directors.
Please know that donors will continue to be able to direct their donations, and the Foundation will maintain an office at both hospital sites.
This announcement does not affect the two hospital auxiliaries. They will continue to raise funds for much-needed hospital equipment at the Perth and Smiths Falls sites, respectively.
We look forward to continuing the vital work of raising much needed philanthropic dollars for our community hospital, its equipment, and the amazing people that work there. Donations will continue to be gratefully received.
Thank you for your continued support and generosity!
