Nottawasaga Foundation Contributes $100,000 to Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation Capital Campaign
Today, the Nottawasaga Foundation presented their fourth $100,000 installment of a $1 million pledge made to the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF).
To celebrate their 25th Anniversary in 2017, The Nottawasaga Foundation and the Biffis family pledged $1 million over 10 years towards the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Capital Campaign, Because of you, we can. The pledge will support the Hospital’s redevelopment project, as well as technology upgrades such as Meditech, the new Health Information System (HIS) implemented in 2018.
A portion of the funds presented were raised via the Nottawasaga Foundation’s virtual golf fundraising event this past summer, with funds raised through corporate sponsorships and individual donations.
“The Nottawasaga Foundation is always proud to support our hospital. These critical times reinforce how essential Stevenson’s services are to our community and how fortunate we are to access health care close to home,” says Sylvia Biffis, Nottawasaga Foundation and Capital Campaign Chair. “This is our community hospital and timing is critical to receive the redevelopment it deserves. We encourage everyone to support Stevenson every step of the way,” she adds.
The Biffis Family have been dedicated supporters of the Hospital for many years, including advocating for the re-opening of the Obstetrics/Birthing Unit in 2008, supporting digital mammography and maternal child advisory programs.
“We are so grateful to the Biffis Family and the Nottawasaga Foundation for their tremendous leadership and partnership throughout the years. They have played a major role in the success of multiple campaigns throughout the Hospital’s history and we are thankful for their continued support,” says Tanya Wall, Executive Director, SMHF.
