Earlier this year, colleagues from Scotiabank branches in Midland & Penetanguishene, along with members of the Wealth Management and Commercial Banking teams, worked together to make a $15,000 contribution to the Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) Foundation.
“Our team at Scotiabank truly cares about clients and community, and it’s hard to imagine that anyone within our community has not benefitted from the wonderful care at GBGH,” shares Terry Hampson, branch manager, Scotiabank Penetanguishene. “We chose to invest in our local hospital to ensure they can expand infrastructure, be equipped with essential tools, continue education and stay up to date with advances in technology.”
Scotiabank’s gift will support the GBGH Foundation’s Impact Fund, which addresses the highest priority capital equipment needs. This year, the highest priorities include new ultrasound table & probes to help reduce wait times at GBGH; a microfilm scanner, which is essential in retrieving old records used externally and within the hospital; and cardiac monitors, to ensure the most advanced technology is being used for our intensive care patients.
The contribution was recognized as part of the Glenn Howard Charity Golf Classic, which took place at the Midland Golf & Country Club on August 12, 2022.
“We all rely on our hospital…our whole community does,” says Glenn Howard, tournament chair. “It’s a privilege that we get to help give GBGH what they need to diagnose and treat our friends, families and neighbours. We couldn’t do it without the support of our incredible business partners and sponsors, like Scotiabank, who put so much in to making this tournament so beneficial for GBGH.”
And Hampson shared, “I loved being part of the Glenn Howard Charity Golf tournament & committee. It was amazing to see so much fun had by all, while supporting an excellent community and cause.”
The GBGH Foundation is incredibly grateful to Scotiabank for their ongoing support.
