Why Give?

Simply put, you will be making a difference in the lives of your family, your friends, your neighbours, and even strangers.


When you walk into the bright and clean entrance at WDMH – you will be greeted with a smile. You will immediately feel that you are in capable hands. Whether you’re in need of emergency care, giving birth to a new family member, or visiting a loved one, you’ll be treated with compassion and respect. There is a culture of family and community at WDMH that just doesn’t exist in every clinical setting. This is because WDMH is enveloped by so many caring people – staff, physicians, donors, volunteers, and, of course, the greater community.


Your visit here turns you into a member of our team. WDMH is here to care for our patients with compassion – close to home and with our partners. We pursue excellence in all that we do. We are one team that values respect, accountability, innovation, and learning.


WDMH is led by a progressive-thinking team of professionals who are dedicated to meeting the current and future needs of our patients. But we cannot do this alone – you and your investment will help to meet the ongoing and future needs of patients at WDMH.


What will my gift really do?

The WDMH Foundation has been part of supporting the hospital for over 20 years. In that time, renovations and additions have been funded, as well as some education and research, but the Foundation’s main reason for being at this time is to support the purchase of equipment for our local hospital. The provincial government doesn’t support the purchase of medical equipment for Ontario hospitals, so the responsibility is placed entirely on local communities to ensure their hospital is kept furnished with the medical equipment its staff and physicians need to care for patients.


Thank you in advance for your thoughtful commitment to the future of compassionate care at WDMH.
