Bruce Peninsula Hospitals Foundation



Wiarton and Lion’s Head Hospitals are staffed with 150 skilled health care professionals and volunteers – but they couldn’t provide the compassionate care they do without our help. There is very little government funding for medical equipment, meaning the quality of health care at our Peninsula hospitals depends on a generous community.

Bruce Peninsula Hospitals Foundation raises funds for medical equipment, facility upgrades and clinical training to empower nurses, doctors and technical staff to offer the best care possible.

Lion’s Head and Wiarton Hospitals are two of six operating as Grey Bruce Health Services (GBHS).  Residents and visitors to the Peninsula are offered a wide range of clinical services in addition to 24/7 Emergency care.
