Every day, the GBGH team is dedicated to providing exceptional care. To do so requires a lifelong commitment to learning.
Ongoing education is one of GBGH’s core priorities. To ensure that health care’s current and future leaders receive the best education possible, we need the investment of our generous community.
The healthcare system is evolving rapidly, and with this comes new technology, new practices, and new approaches to care. This helps to ensure that our healthcare workers are trained to provide exceptional care and are prepared for any patient scenario.
GBGH healthcare professional bursaries aim to provide development and innovative learning opportunities to the GBGH team. Community investment in the bursaries listed below is what allows us to continue to train tomorrow’s healthcare leaders.
Established in April 2009 with $50,000 from assets of the Foundation, the Hartog Health Innovation Award recognizes the outstanding achievements of staff and physicians, especially to honour those who demonstrate the values of Robbert Hartog; someone who worked tirelessly on behalf of Georgian Bay General Hospital.
“The Family and Friends of Gail La Chapelle Education Fund” is committed to investing in the future of nursing at GBGH. Each year, up to $6,000 is awarded to nurses to help with their financial costs of education ($5,000 in education grants and a $1,000 bursary).
