New donor recognition

The Foundation celebrates HGH’s official opening and unveils its new donor recognition signage

Leadership supporters gathered for a first glance at the new donor recognition signage honouring their generosity.

On June 16, 2022, the HGH Foundation welcomed more than 130 guests to HGH for a garden party to celebrate the hospital’s official opening and unveil its donor recognition program.

The new donor wall is located near HGH’s main entrance, and donor plaques and murals are displayed throughout the hospital recognizing donors’ generosity in supporting HGH.

Mr. Marc LeBoutillier, CEO of HGH, thanked donors in attendance and throughout the community for their incredible impact in making the hospital’s $200 million redevelopment project a reality. Although COVID-19 restrictions kept the event small, we share his thanks with you, as each and every donation has helped build the new HGH and your support continues to bring important new specialty services to Hawkesbury.

A wonderful donation

The evening’s speeches were topped off with a wonderful gift as Mr. Bill Harden and his family presented the HGH Foundation with the funds to purchase a third echocardiogram. One of the most in demand services at HGH with 90 new requests each week, an additional machine will ensure cardiac patients receive vital care and diagnosis more quickly and with the best tools possible.
