Our tax dollars can’t cover the cost of everything our hospital needs and vital donations from the community help bridge the gap between what the government can provide and what our patients need right now.
The giving spirit of our donors ensures that everyone from the tiniest newborns to the most vulnerable elderly patients have better access to ground breaking facilities, the latest equipment and updated infrastructure. Over the past 8 years, the Foundation has invested more than $200 million to bring leading edge care and facilities to our doorstep. Donor funded successes include:
With the Paul Myers Tower now well under construction, LGHF has turned its attention to equipping the hospital with 10 new technologies that will elevate clinical care and improve the patient experience.
With incredible community support, we raised $3.3 million to fund a new advanced Interventional Radiology suite for LGH.
Our donors raised more than $7 million to fund a second MRI machine and renovations to the Medical Imaging Department at LGH.
Our COVID-19 Fund supported urgent infrastructure upgrades and the purchase of equipment and PPE to provide better patient care and protection to staff.
