Many thanks to the staff of the Physiotherapy Department; Ian Stewart, Charlene Rourke, and Erin Lawrenson for taking the time to share their expertise with us.
Bruce Peninsula Health Services Foundation was created at the conclusion of the Generations of Care Campaign to ensure the Campaign’s ongoing ability to provide equipment and services in perpetuity.
In 1997, Bruce Peninsula Health Services Foundation became incorporated as an independent entity and since then, the board of directors and staff have been inspired by the mission of Bruce Peninsula Health Services Foundation, “to assist in the meeting the health care needs of the people of the Bruce Peninsula area by raising funds for priority hospital projects to keep our hospitals current.”
Bruce Peninsula Health Services Foundation strives to provide opportunities for the community to engage in philanthropic activities which support outstanding health care. To meet the health care needs of the people of the Bruce Peninsula, Bruce Peninsula Health Services Foundation supports capital priority needs of Grey Bruce Health Services for Lions Head Hospital, Wiarton Hospital and regional needs of Owen Sound Hospital.
The Provincial Ministry of Health does not provide all the funding required by today's hospitals for up-to-date technology and facilities. The funds must therefore come from the people who use the services.
