An Overview of Past Needs

Each year, the hospital provides the Foundation with a list of highest priority equipment needs. The provincial government does not provide funding for medical equipment purchases for Ontario hospitals, so the Foundation works with donors like you to help fill that funding gap.

We do our absolute best to keep our donors informed when new medical equipment is purchased, but we thought it would be better to have a dedicated section on our website to highlight past medical equipment purchases and so we can say thank you once again to everyone who supports the WDMH Foundation.

Thank you! These equipment purchases would not have been possible without the generosity and support of our donors! I hope you are as proud as we are of what we have accomplished – together! What a team!
