Regional Support for BTHC Expansion Continues
The Boundary Trails Health Centre “The Future is Now” expansion campaign has received tremendous support to date from three municipal governments outside the healthcare facility’s surrounding service region.
In March, both the Town of Carman and RM of Dufferin pledged their support for the campaign. Carman committed has committed $345,654 and the RM of Dufferin has committed $282,273.
In April, the BTHC Foundation Board announced a committment to the campaign from the RM of Montcalm for $80,000.
“We did a lot of research prior to launching this capital campaign and what we found was a startling number of people receiving care at BTHC are coming from outside what we would consider our ‘surrounding area’,” says Foundation Executive Director Shannon Samatte-Folkett. She adds, “that’s what makes these contributions so exciting. These Councils, they understand we are building a truly regional healthcare facility. Their support gives our campaign a tremendous boost, not just financially but in spirit as well.”
