Boaters for Best Care

Boaters for Best Care



 5,000 boaters and 20 marinas raising $500,000 for your Georgian Bay General Hospital!




In the same way that your boat is your home away from home, Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) is your hospital away from home.

Boaters like you rely on GBGH to provide you with the best care possible when needed.  Like all hospitals in Ontario, your GBGH relies on members of the community to provide the funds for equipment necessary for your best care.  Your government does not fund hospital equipment needs or capital costs – it’s up to all of us! 


The CT Scanner at Georgian Bay General Hospital is aging and without a CT Scanner, your Emergency Department cannot function effectively, and lives will be at risk. Staff at GBGH rely on a CT Scanner to quickly identify and diagnose injuries that require immediate treatment.  It is also the primary tool used to diagnose patients with chest pain, head trauma, injuries to hands and feet, and uncontrolled bleeding.  


Boaters from marinas in Penetanguishene, Midland, Victoria Harbour, Waubaushene, Port Severn and Honey Harbour are all coming together to support their hospital away from home!


There are a number of ways to get involved!
