A patient and doctor embrace in a recovery room

Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) Foundation



For more than 40 years, we’ve worked with donors to fund the essential, advanced equipment and technology that form the foundation of patient care at Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC) – bringing new lifesaving services to our region, and helping attract and retain expert healthcare providers.

PRHC is both a community hospital where care is still dispensed with small town warmth, and a fully regional health centre with 475 inpatient beds. World-class patient care is provided here 24 hours a day, seven days a week to patients from across our region.

PRHC serves a population of up to 600,000 people from Peterborough City and County, the City of Kawartha Lakes, Campbellford, Havelock, Cobourg, Port Hope, Port Perry, east Oshawa and parts of the Durham Region, north to Haliburton Highlands and all points in between.

Today. Tomorrow. Together.

It was our community who helped invent the future we enjoy today. Together, PRHC, PRHC Foundation and our incredible donors will usher in a new era tomorrow.

We’re paving the way for the future of healthcare in our region while ensuring our doctors, nurses and staff have vital equipment they need to continue looking after people who require lifesaving and life-changing care right now.

Our Impact

The government funds only a portion of hospital operations. Peterborough Regional Health Centre relies on community donations to give our doctors, nurses and staff the state-of-the-art equipment they need to provide exceptional, compassionate care to patients from all across our region. It’s this technology that forms the foundation of patient care now and will fuel innovation to meet the needs of our growing and changing community in the future.

PRHC is a fully integrated hub hospital supporting five smaller partner hospitals located between Kingston and the Greater Toronto Area. It’s the world-class hospital it is today because of the generosity, leadership and vision of donors.

From the Cardiac Cath Lab and Norm & Jessie Dysart Radiation Centre, to the Breast Assessment Centre, Laboratory, Diagnostic Imaging and Emergency Departments, Labour & Delivery and Neonatal Intensive Care Units, the Learning Centre and all areas in between, donors have funded the equipment and technology that transform patient care at PRHC.

In fact, with support from donors totalling over $30 million in the last five years alone, we’ve invested significantly in every corner of the hospital.
