Coland Developments strengthens local health care with $100K commitment

Four women and two men hold up a giant cheque for $100,000 from Coland Developments for the GBGH Impact Fund

On March 22, 2023, Coland Developments Corporation announced a $100,000 gift to the Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) Foundation. The gift will support the GBGH Foundation’s Impact Fund, supporting the most critical priorities for the hospital. Coland Developments’ co-owner and shareholder, David Colagiacomo, first shared the news of the gift at the Foundation’s Power of Giving Gala in September 2022, with the first $20,000 donated to the event.

Coland Developments is a developer and general contracting construction company that specializes in the design build of medical and dental buildings, retail buildings, institutional buildings, daycare buildings, hospitality and professional or corporate buildings.  They are currently renovating the medical offices at 240 Penetanguishene Road, developing the Midland Town Centre (710 Balm Beach Road E.), and have future plans for Midland Market Square (Highway 12, west of Beamish Road).

“Coland is working to build a stronger, healthier and safer community in Midland because we believe that this is an excellent, growing area that merits investment and first-class development,” shares Robert Colagiacomo, President of Coland Developments. “We are committed to this partnership with the GBGH Foundation because we recognize the needs of Georgian Bay General Hospital are long-term, and we want to work together to strengthen health care in this community.”

The annual pledge of $20,000 over the next five years will help the GBGH Foundation to address the mounting list of high priority equipment needs at the Midland hospital. GBGH has identified more than $11-million in equipment and technology that must be replaced or updated in the next few years, including a new MRI machine.

“This important partnership with Coland Developments is right in line with our mission is to empower GBGH to deliver exceptional health care,” says Nicole Kraftscik, CEO, GBGH Foundation. “They are strengthening community health care through development, and investing in the hospital to benefit every patient who comes through our doors.  We are incredibly grateful for their commitment.”
