Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund Launched

The South Muskoka Hospital Foundation is launching an urgent appeal to year-round and seasonal residents for additional funds in the face of the anticipated arrival of COVID-19 patients to the hospital.
Currently, the hospital is well-positioned for the initial influx of patients, but that situation could quickly change as the corona virus runs its course.
The Emergency Response Fund will be used to acquire equipment and supplies related to the pandemic, including three new ICU beds at a cost of $45,000 each that have just been ordered.
“We don’t know what’s coming down the pipeline, but we don’t want money to be an issue” says the Foundation’s Executive Director Colin Miller, “so if the hospital needs something and we have money in the bank, we can buy it right away.”  Miller was quick to point out that many seasonal residents are already back in Muskoka which will place added pressure on hospital resources.
Donations of any amount are welcomed and can be given online or by mailing a cheque to 75 Ann St., Bracebridge, ON, P1L 2E4, or over the phone by calling (705) 645-4404 x 3193 and leaving your phone number.
Please do not come to the hospital to donate as foundation staff are working from home.
Timing is important to ensure timely acquisition of this equipment. Please share this message on all your social media platforms and by calling a friend.
