A little extra sparkle and shine for West Lincoln Memorial Hospital is going on this year throughout West Niagara. Have you noticed that too?
The WLMH Foundation’s annual Trees of Healthy Wishes campaign will be the best year ever with the community’s help. Your donation will light up trees and angels in Grimsby, Lincoln and West Lincoln.
During the week of Christmas, your wishes from donors will be conveyed in the local paper.
Donations are very much needed to support West Lincoln Memorial Hospital (WLMH) by purchasing new and/or replacement equipment such as a CT Scanner for Diagnostics. The Foundation also reports that funds received will be used to acquire equipment which will be utilized in performing surgeries in the current and future operating suites.
Planning is well underway for a new hospital. The communities served by the hospital are responsible for the “local share” financing; 10% of the total construction cost, as well as, 100% of the cost for new equipment, furniture, fixtures and parking lot infrastructure. The local share of financing for a new WLMH is approximately $60M.
The WLMH Foundation has some great news to share with the community! Their Campaign Committee is growing and together they are pleased to serve this community with their time and talents. Andrew Smith is leading the campaign in the role of Campaign Chair.
Andrew reported that Kurt Whitnell joined the team as Vice Chair and a number of volunteers continue to be recruited to help support the fundraising goal of $60 million.
Kevin Antonides, Chair of WLMH Foundation Governing Board stated, “It is great to see how the timeline towards construction is moving forward at such a fast pace. The enthusiasm of the campaign team is contagious and we are thankful for their volunteerism. We are grateful to the many supporters of WLMH Foundation who have continued to help equip the programs and services at our hospital over the past 39 years since the Foundation began.”
