Meaford Hospital Needs

Highest Priority Needs

Each year our Hospital needs new and replacement medical equipment. The Meaford Hospital Foundation is asked to raise funds for these important needs. The government doesn't pay for most new medical equipment. It's only through the caring support of the community that we continue to have a well-equipped hospital.

Over the years the Meaford Hospital Foundation has, through the generosity and support of its donors, been able to provide funding for capital equipment at the Meaford General Hospital.

Just to give you an example:

  • 2006/07 - $851,000 (includes PAC, MRI)
  • 2007/08 - $764,205 (includes MRI, PACs, C-Arm)
  • 2008/09 - $273,402 (includes MRI, PACs)
  • 2009/10 - $637,000
  • 2010/11 - $467,000
  • 2011/12 - $382,000
