Grand River Hospital Foundation raises funds to help Grand River Hospital provide exceptional health care.
Operated by a team of staff and governed by a volunteer Board of Governors, the GRH Foundation works closely with Grand River Hospital’s leadership team to understand patient needs. With the support from generous donors and loyal community partnerships, the GRH Foundation raises more than $6 million each year to fund:
- Medical equipment and technology;
- Construction and renovation projects; and
- Local clinical and health research and education.
The commitment to health care in our region ensures that the more than 700,000 Waterloo Wellington residents will continue to have access to the best health care services close to home.
