Grand River Hospital Foundation



Everyone in Waterloo Region will come through the doors of Grand River Hospital at some point in time. We’re the largest and most comprehensive community hospital in our region – the hub for cancer treatment, childbirth, pediatrics and neonatal intensive care, mental health, clinical research, kidney and dialysis treatments, stroke, emergencies and critical care.  The kind of hospital we need close to home when it matters most – the kind where care never stops.

But we can’t provide the level of care and research that people need and deserve without our generous community. Because what many may not know is that government funding does not cover the cost of new or replacement equipment or the seeding of new initiatives. Donor support has always been key to our ability to provide the best possible care.

Our Impact

At the core of every world class community are people who care – people who care about the work they do, the community they live in and the chance to make a difference.  At Grand River Hospital Foundation we share that passion and dedicate ourselves to our great community by working in partnership with people from all walks of life to make every healthcare experience exceptional.

Our region is one of the youngest in Canada, with almost 22% of our population under the age of 18. Last year alone more than 4300 babies entered the world at Grand River Hospital.
