Hello

Port Severn couple pledges $150,000 to GBGH


Hubers with Gail Hunt, Nancy Merrow and Kathy Elsdon Befort

January 21, 2019 – After a tour at Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) in the fall of 2018, Port Severn couple Donna and Conrad Huber made a $150,000 commitment to the critical needs of the hospital.

“When we heard that the need for equipment and infrastructure is more than $7 million, we wanted to help,” says Donna. “Thousands of residents rely on GBGH for urgent care, and we want to help ensure our hospital is equipped to provide each patient with the care they need.”

Beginning in 2018, the Huber family pledged $30,000 to GBGH each year for five years, allowing the hospital to use the funds where they are most needed.

The Hubers also shared their story with thousands of community members through a letter mailed in December, asking others to join them in supporting the urgent needs at GBGH. More than 200 donors responded to their request, with collective donations surpassing the $30,000 goal.

“We are so grateful to the Huber family for their generous gift, and for inspiring giving across our communities,” says Gail Hunt, president and CEO, GBGH. “This year, the funds from the Foundation will purchase items such as a portable x-ray machine, vital signs monitors and specialized patient beds.”

GBGH relies on donations from the community to purchase 100 per cent of the equipment needed for patient care and hospital operations. For more information on getting involved in your hospital, visit www.gbghf.ca

Thank you to all of our generous donors for responding to our recent letter!
