Who Supports Our Hospital?
The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care only provides funding for general operating expenses at North Wellington Health Care.
The Mount Forest Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation was established in 1990 to seek funding for hospital equipment and renovations that funded by the Ministry or other government sources. The Foundation raises funding from patients, families and friends of patients, employers concerned about employee health, concerned citizens, travellers through our area, summer and weekend campers, whoever requires the services of the Emergency room and related services.
Here are 5 reasons for giving.
1. Thank You for the care and kindness!
Most people give because they or a loved one have experienced excellence in healthcare that Louise Marshall Hospital and its staff provides. They are grateful for the extra attention they receive close to home. As a result, they want to thank the Foundation with a financial gift. Ways these individuals respond is through the Grateful Patients’ Program or memorial and in-honour gifts.
2. We want to receive healthcare close to home
Others want to assure that Louise Marshall Hospital continues with the most up-to-date equipment and maintains services like:
- Inpatient services for those who need care and must stay in the hospital

Both employers and employees want the assurance that a hospital is close-by. Businesses are attracted to Mount Forest because of the presence of our hospital. Employee organizations send their support.

4. We live in the area during summer months
Seasonal residents enjoy the Mount Forest area and often retire here. One of the key reasons is access to health care when they need it. These individuals support summer activities likethe Mary Lynne Forrest Memorial Golf Tournament.
5. We want Louise Marshall Hospital to be here for the future
When it is time to consider planned giving or disbursement of property and other assets, many factors are considered. If you haven't already planned a future gift for the hospital, talk to your lawyer or financial planner soon. There is no time like the present to take this action.
Patients and their families wish to honour and thank staff for excellence in care. The Foundation has a Grateful Patients Program.
