You Are Invited!
Last fall, the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation launched its “Future is Now” Capital Campaign with a $10 million fundraising goal to support bringing exceptional care to the community. This month, the campaign reached a tremendous milestone with construction starting at the expansion site. Now with actual shovels in the ground, the Foundation Board of Directors is excited to confirm that they have received pledges and donations totaling over $8 million towards the Capital Campaign. The Board would like to thank those municipalities, businesses and individuals who have already committed to the Campaign. We live in a generous community and your extraordinary support, on top of your continuous contributions to the Foundation’s annual commitments, is nothing short of incredible.
“The expansion of acute care inpatient beds and the addition of the new community services building at BTHC will ensure that we continue to meet the long-term needs of the residents of Morden, Winkler and surrounding communities,” says Jane Curtis, CEO, Southern Health-Santé Sud. “It is thanks to the tremendous efforts of the Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation and the community for their generous contributions toward these projects. None of this would be possible if it weren’t for the outstanding support of this community.” Foundation Board Chair, Ben Friesen, agrees. “I would like to personally thank those that have got the campaign to this level, we are so appreciative of the support the expansion project has received. Everyone that has donated or pledged, it’s just fantastic to see the enthusiasm and excitement.”
With the campaign nearing its $10 million target, the Board now invites the community at large to get involved. “We want everyone to feel like they have had the opportunity to be a part of this, to help shape and enhance healthcare in their community for years to come,” Friesen adds. While meeting with each of the 220,000 people that rely on BTHC for care is impossible, the Board welcomes your questions and discussion about the expansion project. Your campaign invitation should be arriving in your mailboxes and if you would like to discuss how you can more meaningfully participate in our expansion fundraising efforts, please give the Foundation office a call at 204-331-8808 ext. 2. You can also visit bthcexpansion.ca for a closer look at the services and programs that will be available once the expansion is complete. The future of healthcare at Boundary Trails Health Centre has never been brighter. Thank you for your continued support!
