Healthcare close to home.

The High River District Health Care Foundation



What matters most to our donors, patients, families and the staff drives everything we do.

For over thirty five years, we have been inspired by the generosity of our community, and supporters across the province and country. Our donors range from community businesses, to service clubs, to families who are extremely grateful for the care and support that a family member has received in High River and Nanton.

We listen thoughtfully to experiences and ideas that are shared with us everyday. These conversations inspire projects and programs that become possibilities for the best in healthcare for our community.

Our Impact

For over three decades the donors and volunteers of the High River District Health Care Foundation have helped ensure that High River, Nanton and the surrounding rural communities have access to the very best local healthcare possible. The Foundation raises and responsibly manages community donations that allow our healthcare professionals to deliver exceptional care to our diverse community, each and every day.

Through our donor’s generosity the Foundation invests in:

  • Purchasing new and up-to-date equipment

  • Providing enhanced patient care services

  • Enhancing community care programs and services

  • Investing in local staff education through scholarships

  • Making life more comfortable for residents of Long Term Care and Silver Willow DSL
