Donors help fund every piece of patient care equipment at Guelph General Hospital.
Patient care is better at Guelph General Hospital because of community support.
Advancements in technology continuously present new opportunities to provide better care to patients. At Guelph General Hospital, caring community members allow our Hospital to keep pace through their generous donations. Recently, generous donors funded ten new cystoscopes for use in Guelph General’s Ambulatory Care Department.
Khalil became involved with the Foundation in 2011 when he was 23 years old, after finishing his education in Economics and Finance at the University of Guelph. That year, Khalil organized his first charity BBQ in front of Guelph General Hospital, selling well over 400 burgers and donating the proceeds to the Hospital Foundation.
Supporting Guelph General Hospital with a legacy donation of $500,000 was an easy decision for Jim and Sandra, and their children Jess and Ryan, who were both born at GGH. Over the years the family has relied on the hospital team many times for surgeries, emergency visits, tests and scans. Through Jim’s volunteer work on the Hospital Foundation board, he learned first-hand the importance of local support to run a first-class hospital.
