UPDATE: WOW! Thank you to the incredible generosity shown by more than 85 businesses & individuals, and The Hubers for their matched gift of $30,000, our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign #ICUBeds4GBGH raised $79,397!
Because of your support, Georgian Bay General Hospital is able to care for non-COVID patients requiring critical care in new, comfortable beds, and will give other patients a safe, and comfortable place to rest and recover in the future. THANK YOU! You’ve shown us that we truly are all in this together!
May 5, 2020 is #GivingTuesdayNow! This new global day of giving and unity is planned as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
We need your help purchase 5 new critical care beds for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH). We are currently in the process of increasing our ICU capacity; we will care for potential COVID-19 patients in our existing ICU and create a separate ICU surge space for non-COVID patients.

The beds have been strategically purchased now, as there is a critical need for them across the organization, and will be used to replace old or broken units once the pandemic situation has settled. Each bed cost $12,000, for a total of $60,000.
Hospital beds are an essential piece of equipment used throughout our hospital.
They provide patients a safe place to rest and recover. New innovation offers a smooth transition from lying down to sitting, for a more comfortable experience. Easy access controls give patients autonomy and independence as they begin their recovery journey.
And since the need is so critical, Conrad & Donna Huber have generously offered to match your donation* so that any gift you give will go twice as far to help our patients today.
