The WDMH Foundation is expanding our family – and completing the circle of care! Today we are officially announcing a new name and mandate for the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation. The provincial government will soon be announcing that a new home will be built for our neighbours at Dundas Manor Long-Term Care Home. While some of the cost of the new building will be funded by the government, the remaining costs need to be raised through community support. The Foundation will lead these fundraising efforts.
“For us – as a health care, fundraising organization – it just makes sense,” says Managing Director, Kristen Casselman. “The Foundation already works alongside donors in support of compassionate care in our community from babies to seniors – and now we want to build upon that commitment. We are excited to welcome Dundas Manor to our family!”
To recognize this expanded mandate, the Foundation has a new name and new look. “We are now ‘The WDMH Foundation’ – reflecting our support for both Winchester District Memorial Hospital and Dundas Manor (DM),” adds Kristen.
Over the next few months, watch for more details about the Foundation’s expanded fundraising efforts and the new Dundas Manor. It is important to note that, as always, donors have a choice as to how their generous gifts are used. And funds that have already been raised for Winchester District Memorial Hospital will remain with Winchester District Memorial Hospital.
