What is your first memory of your hospital? Was is a visit to the Emergency Department as a child after falling off your bike? Was it for the arrival of your first child? Or was it to be with someone you love at the end of their life? Among all the uncertainties in the world at the moment, there’s one thing for sure… your hospital is here for you and your loved ones whenever you need it.
We are all touched in some way by care at our hospital, whether it is a family member or friends. Our community gives generously to ensure North Bay Regional Health Centre is equipment with state-of-the-art medical equipment to provide the best possible care when we need it. The reality is, funding for healthcare is a partnership between the government, our hospital and most importantly, our community.
Here are a few projects our donors have made possible:
- Through the Caring for Generations Campaign our community helped build our Health Centre.
- Two CT Scanners to care for our community.
- The initial MRI purchase 10 years ago, and its current refurbishment.
How your gift will be used
Each year, generous community donations support the purchase of urgently needed medical equipment to care for you, your family, friends and neighbours. Some of these items are upgrades and replacements for existing equipment that has reached end of life, and others are brand-new to NBRHC, updating our technology and allowing the Health Centre to expand services.
A gift in your Will planned today is a gift of a lifetime. We don’t know what the future holds. A gift planned in your estate will help ensure your hospital has the resources to address future challenges and advancements in medicine and technology.
