On behalf of donors last year, the Foundation was able to grant nearly $1.9 million for much-needed patient care enhancements at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital, as well as set aside $5.8 million in committed gifts for the new Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital.
Your gifts purchased new bedside monitors for Emergency, IV infusion pumps to administer patient medications, BiPap respiratory machines to assist patients breathing when they cannot on their own and the refurbishment of the patient and family lounge in palliative care.
