The five foundations that support Grey Bruce Health Services (Bruce Peninsula, Centre Grey, Meaford, Owen Sound, and Southampton) have joined forces in this campaign.

Money raised through Centre Grey's local chapter of the campaign will be shared between oncology/cardiac enhancements in the Owen Sound Hospital and improvements to the Centre Grey Hospital in Markdale. The latter includes operating room equipment upgrades, a new cardiology management system, and the creation of an opportunity fund to meet emerging needs at our local hospital.
