Yarmouth Hospital Foundation



Over 50 years of supporting healthcare.  Established in 1970, the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation provides a way for town and municipal units, individuals, businesses and community groups to support the Yarmouth Regional Hospital and its number one priority: building better healthcare.

Through gifts in wills, annual appeals, memorial, tributes, major gifts, signature and third-party events, the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation works with our community year after year to provide continued support and financial assistance towards the purchase of equipment and services that improve the health and wellness of families and individuals of the tri-county area of Yarmouth, Digby and Shelburne.

Our Impact

Through the generosity of our donors, the Yarmouth Hospital Foundation has donated over $22 million in support of our regional hospital.  This figure includes $10 million raised for hospital expansions in the mid-to-late nineties.  Over the years, equipment purchased includes MRI, CT scan, portable x-ray and ultrasound units, infant ventilators and incubators, laparoscopic suites, renal dialysis equipment, medication management system, upgrades to cardiology, cancer and wellness centres and many more items which are necessary to continue providing high quality healthcare to the Tri-Counties.

The Yarmouth Hospital Foundation is also a major supporter of the Community Navigator initiative aimed at retaining the physicians we have and attracting new ones.
