Technology Needs

Giving here ensures we have the right tools

It is a common misconception that all hospital needs are covered by your tax dollars. The truth is, technology and equipment purchases are funded by the community – that would be all of us in Huntsville for example. So your donations here ensure our medical professionals and staff here have the technology they need to provide advanced care to you and your family.

Technology requirements advance every year; that’s why we need your gifts every year.

One engine, two hospitals creating
forward motion together

Giving here supports our long-term, two hospital vision.


Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) has been long recognized on the broader health care stage for the highest quality of care and commitment to safety. Having recently been awarded Accreditation with Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada, this is a prideful achievement to celebrate and reinforces the MAHC organization as one high-functioning engine powering two hospital sites to meet best-in-class standards for acute care.

By definition, exemplary means ‘worthy of imitation’ and ‘serving as a model or pattern’, and this high regard is one of the many reasons our Muskoka hospitals are the number one placement choice for medical learners from the Northern Ontario Medical School. Time and time again, we have been an example for others to look to – whether through our innovation to create secure rooms to meet our patients’ needs, by developing unique partnerships with learning institutions to support education and recruitment, or by being proud supporters of medical research projects by a number of local physicians.

As MAHC continues to move toward a future service delivery model that maintains acute care hospitals in Huntsville and South Muskoka, we hope you recognize this is the engine that could – the engine that embodies teamwork, endless success stories and exceptional patient care.
