rotary-fullCentre Grey Health Services Foundation has announced its support for The Hospital Campaign, an $11.4-M collaborative fundraising initiative to expand and upgrade cancer-care and cardiac programs across Grey and Bruce.

rotaryb-regularThe 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.

Did you know that of the 14,000-plus cancer-related visits to the Owen Sound Hospital, approximately 1500 are made by patients from the Centre Grey area? The oncology unit and related services are in urgent need of expansion to meet the demand and to enable new diagnostic and treatment technologies to be introduced.rotaryc-feature

Thanks to the hard work of many volunteers and the generosity of donors, nearly $8-M has already been raised. We now reach out to the public and local businesses in our communities for support. For a limited time to help attain that goal Bruce Power has offered to match all campaign gifts of a $1,000 - dollar for dollar. That means your gift can go twice as far to help your community.

Please look for the orange envelope in your mailbox. It includes more information and explains how you can support this critical initiative. You are also encouraged to visit the Foundation's website at and click on The Hospital Campaign logo.
