Getting close! Will you help us reach our goal?
We start 2023 with wonderful news! Thanks to generous donors like YOU, the HGH Foundation’s current fundraising campaign, There’s No Place Like Home, has already reached more than half of its $2.8m fundraising goal. What an incredible achievement!
You are such an important part of bringing more specialty services to Hawkesbury. Already, patients at HGH are reaping the benefit of your generosity with additional services now available in orthopedic surgery and ophthalmology.
In fact, last year, thanks to your support, there were more than 1,100 visits to HGH’s new ophthalmology clinic, and 250 cataract surgeries were performed in the OR. These services would not be available at our hospital without the HGH Foundation’s donors. Together, we have saved patients, many of whom are seniors, the stress of having to make multiple trips to Ottawa for important ophthalmology care – and we’ve only just begun. You are making a difference!
We hope you will continue along this journey with us as we work together to reach our $2.8m fundraising goal, which will:
- Purchase a new 3D mammography machine for HGH by December of this year. This machine detects up to 65% more cases of invasive breast cancer than traditional mammography!
- Expand the ophthalmology program to include additional diagnostic services and care like macular degeneration injections and treatment of glaucoma and retina disease.
- Double the number of endoscopic procedures completed at HGH by outfitting a second endoscopy suite, thereby reducing wait lists and ensuring earlier diagnosis and treatment for patients.
- Add medical equipment needed to create a dedicated urology surgical suite. This will mean a dramatic increase in the number of patients HGH can serve, including the 800 local patients who suffer with kidney stones each year. This painful condition now requires patients to make several trips to Ottawa.
We cannot thank you enough for helping us make the most of the new HGH. We will all benefit from your generosity, and we are so grateful for your ongoing support.
