Your Hospital

Your hospital may be located in a small, beautiful community surrounded by lakes but its impact is anything but small when it comes to care and advanced medicine. It includes a full emergency department, 37 acute care beds, 2 operating theatres, 2 endoscopy suites, advanced diagnostics capabilities, a dialysis centre, and it is the District Stroke Centre for Muskoka. Your hospital in Huntsville, part of Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare, is the centre of healthcare here. We care for thousands of people every year and expect to receive thousands upon thousands more through our emergency department doors alone over the coming decade. While careful and collaborative planning for the future of healthcare in this region will continue as it should, your hospital is about providing the best care available here and now. When you're a resident in the Huntsville region and catchment area, this is the hospital you depend on. When you visit your cottage or tour the area as almost 1,000,000 people do every year, this is the hospital you turn to for care and access to specialized healthcare throughout Ontario. Huntsville Hospital is your hospital. We hope you see it that way too.

Your Foundation

Your hospital in Huntsville is supported financially by the Huntsville Hospital Foundation. It's your Foundation; it is staffed by four professionals and governed by a deeply committed Board of Directors who represent both full time and seasonal residents. Every member of our Board is an active donor to the Huntsville Hospital Foundation. Our Vision is Healthcare for life, here. We inspire giving to make that Vision real. While many hospital foundations focus on long-term campaigns, our challenge here is more straight-forward (yet no less profound):


To ensure our hospital and medical professionals have the technology and equipment they require to provide exceptional care, we must inspire our community to donate $3,000,000 per year. Click here to review our 2018 Annual Report.
$3 million every year - we achieve it by asking individuals for donations, engaging our local business community, educating community groups and resident organizations, and by staging fundraising events. We achieve our goals when our community steps up. And we're pleased to report that the good people of Huntsville and the surrounding area are stepping up. Thank you. For the past several years and more important, for stepping up again and again in the future. The need for advances in healthcare, diagnosis and treatment never ends. Our commitment to inspiring your next gift is just as resolute.
