Charities

The Collingwood General & Marine Hospital

Mission Statement
The Collingwood General & Marine Hospital Foundation raises funds for the capital needs of the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital (CGMH) including equipment, technology and facility renovation/construction. The CGMH Foundation also supports programs and services not funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.

Description
CGMH is a small community hospital serving approximately 60,000 full time residents and over 2.5 million weekenders and visitors annually. We are a major trauma unit and a regional orthopaedic center of excellence.

Historically, government funding of CGMH has been barely adequate to cover operational costs such as salaries, medications, utilities and other supplies. As a result, over the past 15 years community support has been the only reliable source of funding to replace worn and outdated equipment/furnishings or to invest in new medical technology.

CGMH Foundation is a volunteer led organization tasked with raising the funds necessary to ensure physicians and staff at CGMH have the tools and facilities they need to make fast, accurate diagnoses and deliver exceptional care.

Current Goal
This year the Foundation’s goal is to raise $10,000 for new defibrillator transport monitors which are used in every department throughout the Hospital. Your donation will help the proper tools and resources to provide the best care possible at CGMH. Thank you for supporting this important goal.
