Cobequid Health Centre Foundation

About Cobequid Health Centre Foundation

More than 150,000 patients walk through our doors each year in search of one vital thing: outstanding healthcare. Cobequid Health Centre is the third busiest Emergency Department in Nova Scotia. Known for our extraordinary care and compassion, we go the extra mile to help our patients and clients.

Our communities needs are diverse and ever changing and Cobequid Health Centre continues to grow and change with them. The Cobequid Health Centre serves a wide range of people with various medical needs and we strive to exceed their needs. What sets Cobequid apart is all the unique things we have to offer. Cobequid is home to the only public Youth Health Centre that is accessible without a referral. Our Youth Health Centre serves almost 4,000 young adults aged 13 to 25 a year.  Cobequid has the only FibroScan unit with the Nova Scotia Health facilities.  This piece of equipment is critical in helping patients and care providers use up-to-date technology to manage liver disease.  We do it differently at Cobequid because we are different.  We are the only day hospital of our kind in the province of Nova Scotia.

We are a small hospital, and that means we are here for you and the people you care about. The demand for quality care close to home will continue to grow along with our vibrant neighborhoods. We are people from the community, taking care of our community. Each donation helps us make a difference in the healthcare that is available. We are committed to transforming the community hospital experience, but we know we cannot embark on this ambitious journey alone. Help us continue to make our community a better place to live.

Our Impact

Without donors like you, the Cobequid Health Centre is just a building. Donors fund 100 per cent of the equipment used to treat, diagnose, and care for the patients here. Donors are essential to supporting health care. You can see the impact from donations on patient care in every patient room and treatment area at the Cobequid Health Centre. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and our community, Cobequid Health Centre Foundation has been successful in funding the hospital’s ongoing need for equipment and technology. But we need your help to be able to continue to make this a reality.

Although we don’t know what the future holds, your support will help ensure we are prepared to address any challenge. The deep roots in our community mean that your legacy gift can help us design and deliver equipment that address complex healthcare needs. No one knows what priority medical equipment will be needed in the future but a gift planned in your estate will ensure we have the financial resources to answer the call. It truly is a gift of a lifetime.
