Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation



For more than a century, the residents of North Simcoe have relied on the healthcare services of Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH); and our hospital has counted on the community for the tools to provide exceptional care. The hospital has grown from a 12-bed home in Sunnyside to a bustling healthcare facility, providing care close to home for our local and seasonal families.

A hospital is vital to the health of a community and having up to date  equipment and technology is a necessity at Georgian Bay General Hospital! We also know that our government-funded healthcare system just can’t meet every need. That means we must count on each other to help provide the best possible care, retain top healthcare professionals and keep trust in our local hospital. And that’s what we do together, every day.

Simply put, we are on a mission to empower Georgian Bay General Hospital to deliver exceptional health care.

Our collective vision is to inspire generosity, strengthen health care and celebrate impact.

We are grounded deeply by our values.

Collaboration: We enthusiastically embrace partnership with others to achieve our mission.

Accountability: We act with honesty, integrity and transparency with the resources entrusted to us.

Respect: We commit to use the strength of our differences to embrace each person’s uniqueness, with a spirit of inclusivity, diversity and equality.

Excellence: We strive to achieve transformation fundraising results, deliver exemplary stewardship and embrace change with innovative thinking.

Our Impact

Our donors have supported incredible development at GBGH. The new state-of-the-art Emergency Department has doubled in size and includes new trauma, treatment and specialized (gynecology and ophthalmology) examination rooms, a new triage area, new waiting area and an indoor ambulance bay.  The new CT Scanner arrived in 2018 which enables our residents to stay in our community to get this vital diagnostic testing.  

Every year over 40,000 patients come to GBGH for emergency medical care, and the number continues to grow. GBGH is the community hospital for over 65,000 local residents and in the summer months swells to a population of over 250,000. With your commitment to support, we can continue to provide exceptional patient care. Every person. Every time.

That’s why we work to mobilize those who believe in making a lasting, local difference. To build better health for all.
