At the regular meeting of the Jarvis Lions on Monday, April 9th, 2018, a donation was made to the West Haldimand General Hospital Foundation and the Norfolk General Hospital Foundation. Each Foundation received $3,000.00 from the proceeds of our 70th Anniversary Charter Night in January and from our Candy Sales at our Annual Show "Now & Then" in March. Shown are Lion President Dave Doughty, Jean Waite from the West Haldimand General Hospital, Jennifer White from the Norfolk General Hospital and Lion Nick Montague. The Jarvis Lions would like to thank all those who gave so generously to make these donations possible. Also a huge thank you to both of our area hospitals for the important role that they play in the health and well-being of our residents. Thank you!

Your donations are an investment in our community. It is our hospital!
Many Ontarians believe that because we have a publicly funded health care system hospitals are fully supported by the government. However this is not the case, only operating costs are funded. Capital equipment purchases must be funded almost exclusively by its community.
The equipment we have been able to purchase and the goals we have reached were only achievable thanks to broad-based community support. Community giving has allowed our hospital to enter the age of digital imaging and minimally invasive surgery. It has helped us install technology that less than a decade ago did not exist.
Over the past years the Foundation with your help was able to fund the following equipment. Thank you to our many donors who continue to support the Foundation.
