Did you know that the provincial government provides hospitals with operating expenses but ALL equipment must be funded by other sources?
Each year the Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor asks the Foundation to raise enough money to meet its annual capital budget of approx. $300,000. These funds are used to purchase much-needed equipment for Hospital patients and Fairview Manor residents. Below are some of the essential items you, our donors have helped provide in previous years.
In 2016 the Board of Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor asked the Foundation to raise $4 million. The Hospital's ultrasound and x-ray equipment were no longer adequate and needed to be urgently replaced. In addition, CT scans have become the standard of care, especially in emergent cases. The Foundation accepted the challenge and announced it's public campaign in May 2017.
"PUT YOURSELF IN THE PICTURE" is a $4 million campaign dedicated to the replacement and purchase 2 digital x-ray machines, 2 ultrasound machines and a CT scanner to ensure our patients, residents and community have the best in diagnostic imaging services.
$1 million dollars has already been raised. Now, we invite you to "Put Yourself in the Picture" and help provide your family, your neighbours and the community with the care they need right here at home.
