Our building is old. It was designed and equipped to accommodate the Collingwood of 50 years ago.
A new hospital is on the horizon for us. But the horizon is the end result. Our community’s healthcare needs won’t wait until we have a new building. We can’t stop investing in this hospital, just because another one is years away.
With your help, we will build a bridge between the present and the future of healthcare at CGMH. Our patient rooms require renovation to address the many infrastructure repairs, upgrades and wear-and-tear improvements necessary to maintain a safe, comfortable, and healthy environment for our patients and their families.
That’s why we have launched a $1 million campaign to renovate all of the patient rooms in our Hospital to provide Safer Care to our patients. This is only possible with your donations.
Over the next 10 years, we will treat over 50,000 patients in the 58 patient rooms at CGMH. Current standards say we should have 100% private patient rooms. While it is not possible to increase the physical footprint of our old and undersized building to create private rooms, we can still do so much to ensure the safety of our patients.
Not only will we be giving the rooms a facelift – studies show that bright, cheerful rooms help encourage optimal healing, but we will be investing in state of the art infection prevention and control technology. This means reducing the risk of a hospital acquired infections. Please help keep patients safe.
