Emergency Care Fund

Emergency health care delivery is one of the most active and demanding areas of any hospital, and South Muskoka Memorial Hospital is no exception. The Foundation’s newest campaign reflects that demand with a goal to raise $2.1 million.

In addition to supporting the Emergency Department (ED), funds will be used to purchase much needed equipment for other departments that support the ED, like our lab and diagnostic imaging departments. Six out of ten patients who come to the ED require additional testing, such as x-rays, other imaging modalities and lab work.

The South Muskoka Memorial Hospital has one of the busiest EDs in cottage country, seeing more than 20,000 patients a year. Those patient visits spike in the summertime, with approximately one quarter of annual visits occurring in July and August. Everything from cardiac crash carts at $5,000 each to mental health safe rooms are needed. A detailed list is provided above.
